and heinous behavior
of low ranking military personnel at Abu Ghraib 
and elsewhere as

by a leadership that appears to be singularly 
lacking in the capacity
for doubt, self-questioning, or the 
acknowledgement of mistakes. We
have been plunged into a moral chaos that can 
only end when saner
minds, "man rationale" in T.E. Lawrence's words, 
can once more assume
authority in this nation.
