TRUTH COMMISSION: DON'T STOP AT TORTURE
According to an article, "General Rick Sanchez Calls for War Crimes Truth Commission - VIDEO UPDATE" by Jack Hidary. Huffington Post. May 31, 2009.
In front of a packed audience tonight at the Times Center in New York City, General Ricardo Sanchez, the former commander of all coalition forces in Iraq, called for a truth commission to investigate the abuses and torture which occurred there.
Sanchez was in charge of U.S. troops in Iraq when the Abu Ghraib torture, killings, and sexual perversion first surfaced.
This is better late than never. Of course, Sanchez has to be prepared to be shown to be complicit by being aware and not coming forth and resigning. Also, the issue of whether or not the guilty will be given amnesty is the central question. As a Christian, I'm opposed to punishment, but the truth about all the criminality of the Bush neocons and foreign agents must come out and then that truth about punishment must be faced as well.
