More on Abu Ghraib. Gen. Antonio Taguba questions integrity of Rumsfeld and honesty of Bush.

David Usborne of the UK’s Independent reports that Major General Antonio Taguba, the two-star Army General who led the first military investigation into human rights abuses at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison, has “bluntly questioned the integrity of former US Secretary of Defence, Donald Rumsfeld” for misleading Congress and “downplaying his own prior knowledge of what had happened” at Abu Ghraib.

Usborne also reports that Taguba says, Pres. Bush also "had to be aware" of the atrocities despite saying at the time of the scandal that he had been out of the loop until he saw images in the US media.
