How about it, ma'am?

BG Janis Karpinski, who commanded the 800th Military Police brigade in Iraq before being suspended pending the Abu Ghraib investigation, is now writing a book on the episode - due out in 2005 from MiraMax. She decided to speak out in the San Francisco rag SFGate and blames everybody but herself for the Abu Ghraib debacle. Army officers are supposed to be responsible for everything that happens or fails to happen to their unit. Since the whole incident started, I think she has dodged responsibility and pointed fingers at everyone else. When is she going to take any responsibility?
