News: Interrogation Officer Charged

BBC | US charges ex-Abu Ghraib officer

It's about time. The US military has a habit of scapegoating enlisted personnel and junior officers when it comes to war crimes. I hope that charging a lieutenant colonel will do two things: (1) hold responsible officers who give orders or implicit support to torture and (2) change the torture-is-sometimes-OK culture that has somehow infected the US military during the "War on Terror".

    there! My name is Pedro Torres, I'm a SDA pastor in Spain. Right now I'm studying my Ph D. in communications and I'm wondering if it's worthy to focus my investigation in blogs as a media for evangelism. Just let me know your thoughts.
    Don't stop posting your blog, and.. happy sabbath!

    Uhm, my e-mail is ptorres@unionadventista.es
