Finally, An Abu-Ghraib Higher-Up Takes Some Heat...

Karpinski Busted Down to Colonel.....But, Shoplifting? WTF?!

Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski was disciplined after Army leaders deemed her job performance "seriously lacking" and accused her of concealing a past shoplifting arrest.

The Army said in a statement Karpinski had been reduced in rank to colonel, although an investigation by the Army inspector general's office "determined that no action or lack of action on her part contributed specifically to the abuse of detainees at Abu Ghraib."

Karpinski said last year she was being used as a "convenient scapegoat" for detainee abuse that was the fault of others.

Again, WTF?!

A U.S. official who asked not to be identified said Karpinski failed to inform the Army as required when filling out an official document about an earlier arrest on an Air Force base in the United States on a misdemeanor charge of stealing less than $50 worth of cosmetics from a military store.
Asked how Army investigators looking into detainee abuse learned of her shoplifting arrest, the official said, "Somebody ratted her out."

1) Did Karpinski get busted for Abu Ghraib, or is it the petty theft.

2) Holy Mother of Pearls, what in the crappety-fuck is a senior military officer doing shoplifting, shoplifting, Maybelline and Lip Smackers from the PX?!

This is not something that is going to look good in the "G.I. Jane" file.

Undeniably imagine that which you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest
thing to take note of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed
even as people consider issues that they just do not realize about.
You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and outlined
out the entire thing without having side effect , other folks can take a signal.

Will likely be back to get more. Thank you
