In the matter of Abu Ghraib

Finally, something both left and right can agree on: this is truly horrendous.

This comment by S. W. Anderson, posted to John Cole's blog, seems to say it all:

The people who did this ceased being U.S. soldiers when they did it. They're punks and sociopaths who somehow managed to get into the military.

Try 'em, fair and square, and then send them up the river for 20 years. The damage they've done is incalculable, especially to the valor and sacrifice of those who've gone by the rules, fought and even died, honorably.

Please, apply no political angle to this — never mind about Rather, Bush, Kerry or whoever. This is a matter of right and wrong, and anyone with two functioning brain cells and an ounce of decency will get it right.

So mote it be.
