Officer charged in Abu Ghraib to be court-martialed
• Man was only officer to be criminally charged
• He faces court-martial on eight charges, including cruelty and maltreatment
• Officer is reservist from northern Virginia
Surprise, Surprise! One of the valiant and honorable service members who brutalized prisoners in the Abu Ghraib scandal is from Northern Virginia (NoVa). What a shock! Why, that’s about as shocking as watching grass grow…or turtles mating…or field mice frolicking. All sarcasm and pathetic joking aside — there is no real surprise that this thug is from NoVa. Just drive down I-95 south and you’ll run into a bunch of these flag waving patriotic buffoons near the Dumfries, Stafford, Quantico, Fredricksburg areas, etc.
I often see these G.I. Joe wannabees in the morning as I drive off to work as well. Even if you go further up I-95 north and take a drive through places like Arlington or Alexandria — you still get to see these losers. They parade themselves around like they own this world and everything in it! I used to work with an army reservist — in addition to being a bigoted yokel — he also thought he was God’s gift to women. I always found it amusing when he would try to flirt with female employees and customers only to be immediately rejected. So, I ‘aint the least bit surprised that a military officer from NoVa would be involved and ultimately charged with criminal offenses in the Abu Ghraib scandal.
