Lynndie England, the “thumbs-up poster girl” of Abu Ghraib, has taken to the airwaves to proclaim her victimhood in the face of damning photographs.
Any guesses on whether she shows any sense of culpability?
Army Pfc. Lynndie England, seen worldwide in photographs that show her smiling and pointing at naked Iraqi prisoners, said she was ordered to pose for the photos, and felt “kind of weird” in doing so.
It’s called a “conscience.” Try listening to it sometime.
“I was instructed by persons in higher rank to stand there and hold this leash and look at the camera,” she said.
“To all of us who have been charged, we all agree that we don’t feel like we were doing things that we weren’t supposed to, because we were told to do them. We think everything was justified, because we were instructed to do this and to do that,” England said.
You were only following orders … how original. Ah, the Nuremberg Defense. Works like a charm, that one.
She told KCNC she was looking forward to having her baby and hopefully one day putting the abuse scandal behind her.
You’ll have your baby, then you’ll spend a long term in Ft. Leavenworth, then you’ll be able to get acquainted with your grown child and start “putting it behind you.”
