Soldier Sentenced to 8 Years for Iraq Abuse

A US soldier has been sentenced to eight years in prison for his involvement in the torture at Abu Ghraib, according to Reuters. He is the third soldier to be convicted for his role in the prison scandal, while five others still await their trials.

Of course, I eagerly await the day when the architects of the abuse and torture at Abu Ghraib face their reckoning. Hell, if a staff sergeant is sentenced for eight years, then surely those higher ups in the Justice Department and the Pentagon who sanctioned and issued decrees for this activity deserve much worse. Right?
