"Don Rumsfedd is to the Iraq war disaster as FEMA's Michael Brown is to the Katrina disaster," says Dr. Zimbardo.
Rummy said, "These events occurred on my watch. As Sec Def I am accountable for them. I take full responsibility."
So, Rummy, you're guilty of Command Complicity in these abuses and you should occupy the cell next to the lowly Army Reserve MP that you blamed. What about acting accountable?
