    California unit members in Iraq under investigation for detainee abuse, and extortion

    The Los Angesles Times reports that members of a California National Guard unit are being investigated for abusing their captives in Iraq, and extorting money from local shopkeepers:

    The battalion's commander, Lt. Col. Patrick Frey, has been suspended while the investigation is conducted, Baldwin said. Soldiers from a third company in the battalion have also been "pulled back to garrison mode," a military official said. Baldwin declined to discuss the allegations in detail or name the soldiers and officers involved. The "National Guard cannot comment on an ongoing U.S. Army investigation," he said.
    Why are US senators not pushing for those in the Bush regime who allowed an atmosphere of torture and abuse to prevail in Iraq, to be punished? Maybe because they are spineless, and will roll over when the Bush regime tell them what to do? See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
