Yesterday, Gen. John P. Abizaid, Lt. Gen Ricardo S. Sanchez and Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee. Abizaid and Sanchez took responsibility for what happened in their commands. However, both said they hadn't seen the Red Cross reports of abuse at Abu Ghraib prison until long after they were made.

In a New York Times story today Eric Schmitt, he reported " 'This system is broken,' said Gen. John P. Abizaid, the top commander in the Middle East, of the way Red Cross reports were handled by the military." Schmitt wrote of Miller that he "defended a series of recommendations that his team presented to General Sanchez including having military guards to conduct 'passive intelligence gathering' by observing the prisoners and who they talked to, and reporting this to military intelligence officers before interrogations. Janis Karpinski, now relieved of her command at the prison, said that Miller told her he was going to Gitomoize Abu Ghraib. Miller was in charge of the prison at Guantanamo. 05.20.04
