Irma Graner Speaks Out - Who Hears?

Our worthless SCLM won't report on this; I googled

and got results from two Aussie papers and one Chinese paper. Here's Mrs. Graner's quote (via lapin's DKos diary which gives the attribution to
"You know its the higher-ups that should be on trial ... they let the little guys take the fall for them. But the truth will come out eventually," Irma Graner told journalists outside the courtroom at the Fort Hood army base in Texas.

She also denounced Bush for comments he made last year after pictures of the abuses at the US-run Iraqi prison caused worldwide condemnation.

"My son was convicted the day President Bush went on TV and said that seven bad apples disgraced the country. But Bush and (Defense Secretary Donald) Rumsfeld are the ones who disgraced the country," she said.

If the American public has any shame regarding torture, the SCLM is happy to hand them scapegoats. Then leave it at that.

The days of "investigative reporting" and courage in our media are quaint relics of the past. Corporate owned media is nothing but a mouthpiece of the government.
