Headlines GI Testifies Against Woman in Iraq Abuse


Seeker of Truth
FORT BRAGG, N.C. - A soldier already convicted in the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal testified Monday that fellow Army reservist Pfc. Lynndie England was a willing participant in creating the "human pyramid" of naked Iraqi detainees shown in infamous photographs from Iraq.

Pvt. Jeremy C. Sivits testified at a hearing in England's case that he helped escort one detainee into the Baghdad prison one night in December 2003. He said a sergeant who was in charge ordered England and another soldier to stop "stomping on the fingers and toes" of a detainee.

After that sergeant left, Sivits testified, he watched as Spc. Charles Graner Jr. and others stacked seven naked detainees, who had bags over their heads, in the human pyramid and photographed them.

The photos included shots of England, 21, smiling and pointing at one detainee's genitals and posing behind the pyramid.

"Corporal Graner seemed like he was enjoying it," said Sivits, of the Maryland-based 372nd Military Police Company. He testified that England was "having a good time."
Hmmm, looks like they're trying to pin the whole thing on this ONE girl.

OK, have we all learned our lesson about sending girls from West Virginia to Muslim countries? First Jessica Lynch, and now Lynndie.

It can only lead to trouble...
