Deleted Post On Abu Ghraib Allegations

The White House and the Pentagon have both denied the allegations. I'm taking this down and hiding comments until we know more. I've become so outraged by all this that I'm on rather a hair-trigger. But this is the sort of thing, I think, that requires us to be very judicious. Even false allegations are likely to be incendiary. I have to say, these new reports strain credulity. Sadly, however, we know enough to know that they are within the new, revised realm of the plausible in which we now operate.
