Soldier betrayed

Army Spc. Charles Graner was railroaded by the U.S. government and betrayed by the people of America. To send this man to prison for what happened at Abu Ghraib is an outrage.

Captured terrorists or enemies who are supporting terrorists have no rights.

These monsters are the same brutes that support the beheadings of innocent civilians and the killing of American troops.

Any method, no matter how painful or humiliating, can be used to extract information from terrorist prisoners such as the ones that were under Graner’s control.

Clearly, the American government held this belief, too, and that is why it made it appear to troops like Graner that the humiliation of terrorists under military control was acceptable.

However, the American government betrayed its own troops, “who have been killed and wounded by the thousands by the terrorists like the ones that were being held at Abu Ghraib.” and decided to imprison a man who was just doing his job.
