Is our children learning?

Learning that from the C-in-C that you're not guilty if there is no evidence.
Afghan Photos Sparked Inquiry: "According to military documents disclosed Thursday, the soldiers, fearing 'another public outrage,' destroyed many of the photos and video images after photographs of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib were beamed around the world, resulting in widespread shock and criticism....

A specialist who took some of the photos told investigators the 'bad photos' were shot before the Abu Ghraib scandal erupted. He added that he 'only became aware of this after the news broke on television and newspapers of the Iraqi incidents.'

What constituted a 'bad photograph?' investigators asked.

'One where the public would be outraged,' he said."
