May 5, 2004 | ACLU-RDI 5061
This article describes criminal investigations into detainee deaths and assaults in Iraq and Afghanistan in the aftermath of the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal. It documents Condoleeza Rice's public "apolog[y] to the Arab world," and Donald Rumsfeld's "public assurances that those responsible for misconduct would be held accountable." The article also describes allegations that Pentagon officials did not appropriately consider a March 2004 report by Army Major General Antonio M. Taguba critical of the conditions at Abu Ghraib.
