    Iraq denounces US abuses

    According to this article, from CNN, and several others, Iraq has denounced as "irresponsible", and unnecessarily provocative", the serious breaches of human rights laws by Americans at Abu Ghraib:

    More than 25 people have been held accountable for criminal acts and other misconduct associated with prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib, according to the U.S. Defense Department's Web site. Army Reserve Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski, who was in charge of Abu Ghraib during the prison abuse scandal, was demoted to colonel. She also was formally relieved of command of the 800th Military Police Brigade. Another officer, Col. Thomas Pappas, was reprimanded and fined.

    "Reprimanded and fined"? What? These flagrant breaches of international law deserve more serious punishments than merely "reprimands", "fines" or "demotions"
