Off to see a Brigadier General.

Tomorrow, I'm going to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, to see Brigadier General Janis Karpinski speak. (Tickets are still available, for those who are in the area.)

Ms. Karpinski is the highest ranking officer -- currently -- to receive serious disciplinary action over the Abu Ghraib abuses, but she has recently come forward claiming that she is not the sole general who is responsible for the abuses -- she claims that Sanchez and Miller, amongst others, are responsible -- and that there has been an attempt to cover up what happened, with several generals and Pentagon officials directly responsible for policies and decisions that led to the abuses.

I'll report on what I hear and let you know the details soon, hopefully.
