Prisoner Abuse May Have Been Approved at the Top

An Opinion Editorial in yesterday's Cleveland Plains Dealer suggests that the abuse of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Graihb was approved at the top. If that is the case, then merely closing those prisons will not put an end to the abuse.

We shouldn't need legislation to assure that the prisoners we hold are not abused and tortured, but we do.

How could anyone be surprised at this. Bush's administration is as top down as they come. Nobody can do anything without having to wire Washington for instructions. The only problem is that the buck doesn't stop at the oval office like it did with Truman.
