Déjà vu all over again?

A tale of detainee abuse:

Even though military investigators learned soon after Mr. Dilawar’s
deaththat he had been abused by at least two interrogators, the Army’s
criminalinquiry moved slowly. Meanwhile, many of the Bagram interrogators, led
by the same operations officer, Capt. Carolyn A. Wood, were redeployed to Iraq
and in July 2003 took charge of interrogations at the Abu Ghraib prison.
According to a high-level Army inquiry last year, Captain Wood applied
techniques there that were “remarkably similar” to those used at Bagram.

Okay, let me see if I understand this: Abuse occurs in an “institution”; those in authority are slow to examine the behavior. The abusers, instead of being punished are reassigned – then reports of even more abuse come to light.

Is Cardinal Bernard Law of Boston running the US military’s prisoner policy?
