Conviction of officer in Abu Ghraib case is dismissed

Published: 01.11.08, 12:49 / Israel News

The US Army has thrown out the conviction of the only officer court-martialed in the Abu Ghraib scandal, bringing an end to the four-year investigation and drawing complaints from human rights activists of a Pentagon whitewash.

 

Barring any startling new information, the decision means no officers or civilian leaders will be held criminally responsible for the prisoner abuse. Lt. Col. Steven L. Jordan was cleared this week of any criminal wrongdoing by Maj. Gen. Richard J. Rowe, commander of the Military District of Washington. Jordan was instead given an administrative reprimand, a blot on his record. (AP)
