I believe Lynndie England

It is simply impossible to believe that a Private First Class would carry out abuses like she did without orders.

A US soldier convicted of abusing Iraqi prisoners said, in remarks recently made public, she knew of “worse things” happening at Abu Ghraib and insisted military commanders were fully aware of what was going on in Iraq’s infamous jail.

The comments, made by Private First Class Lynndie England in her first post-court-martial interview, contradicted assertions by top Pentagon officials that a small group of out-of-control soldiers were responsible for abuse at Abu Ghraib, and that no matter how repulsive that mistreatment was, it did not amount to torture.
