Advocating Torture

Military investigators charge the former Guantanamo prison commander with promoting acts of torture, but the Pentagon gives him a free pass:
Investigators determined that interrogators violated the Geneva Conventions and Army regulations three times. It was unclear from the aide's description what those instances were.

They also recommended that Army Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller be reprimanded for failing to oversee the interrogation of a high-value detainee, which was found to have been abusive, the aide said.

But Gen. Bantz J. Craddock, commander of U.S. Southern Command, instead referred the matter to the Army's inspector general, said the aide. Craddock concluded that Miller did not violate any U.S. laws or policies, according to the aide.
Move along, nothing to see here..
