Officer "docked pay" for torturing Iraqi to death
Chief Warrant Officer Lewis Welshofer, the highest ranking US Army official charged to date in the death of an Iraqi detainee, was convicted of negligent homicide on Saturday after it decided the death was not murder.
Welshofer, following broader army guidelines tortured an Iraqi General named Abed Hamed Mowhoush by covering his mouth and placing him head first into a sleeping bag then sitting on his chest during an interrogation.
The man died. How is that not murder?
The interrogation technique itself completely defies logic, how are you going to get information from someone who's mouth is covered and has been placed inside a sleeping bag?
We also know that any informatin extrapolated via the method of torture is highly suspect at best and most likely completely unreliable.
Yet the globalists still defend the method as effective.
The officer was fined $6,000 in salary and was largely restricted to his barracks and workplace for 60 days.
The leniancy of the sentance highlights the fact that US forces can literally get away with murder and that the use of torture is deemed to be permissable due to the fact that officers who carry it out are simply "following orders".
Where are the punishments for those responsible for these orders?
