Maj General takes the Fifth on Abu Ghraib
WashPost: Maj Gen Geoffrey D. Miller, a central figure in the US detainee abuse scandal, this wk invoked his right not to incriminate himself in court-martial proceedings against 2 soldiers accused of using dogs to intimidate captives at the Abu Ghraib prison. The move by Miller--who once supervised the US detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and helped set up operations at Abu Ghraib--is the 1st time the general has indicated he might have info that could implicate him in wrongdoing. Hmm... a few rogue underlings came up w/this all on their own, huh? Then why ever would this Maj Gen take the fifth in order to avoid incriminating himself?
