I got miserable and self-righteous about stories of US abuse of prisoners in Iraq last week, but now I’m just puzzled at similar reports about UK troops. It’s too strange seeing anti-war paper The Guardian fisking anti-war paper The Mirror by letting its picture editor loose on the Mirror‘s photos of supposed nastiness.

Meanwhile, in the USA, the former commander of the prison where the most infamous scenes of abuse were filmed goes on TV in person to state that she never witnessed them. Is there anyone out there prepared to argue with her?
