Army throws out conviction of Abu Ghraib commander.

“The US army has thrown out the conviction of the only officer court martialed in the Abu Ghraib scandal,” Lt. Col. Steven Jordan, and “instead given an administrative reprimand.” The order has drawn complaints from human rights activists, who are accusing the Pentagon of a “whitewash” of the scandal. “Barring any new information, the decision means no officers or civilian leaders will be held criminally responsible for the prisoner abuse.”
