- Iraq: In Prison Abuse Hearing, U.S. Guards Accused Of Doing It 'Just For Fun' RFE/RL 04 Aug 2004 -- Debate is growing over who bears responsibility for the U.S. abuse of Iraqi prisoners. At a court hearing in the United States yesterday, U.S. military investigators portrayed U.S. guards accused of torturing prisoners at Abu Ghurayb prison as doing it "just for fun" and "to vent their frustration." But the lawyer of defendant Private Lynndie England said that she and other guards acted on orders from military intelligence officials who wanted guards to "soften up" prisoners for interrogations -- a tactic the lawyer said was "systemic" in numerous U.S.-run prisons in Iraq. Meanwhile, the U.S. general formerly in charge of Abu Ghurayb says the abuse was hidden from her in a cover-up that may reach the top levels of the U.S. government.
