Rumsfeld's 'Twin Cobra Fist'
Rumsfeld Fighting Technique
The different hand gestures of our Secretary of Defense
Rumsfeld has come under fire over the past few days because of his failure to prevent
abusive behavior/torture conducted by American soldiers toward Iraqi prisoners at the
Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.
Rumsfeld received a March 3 US Army report detailing American abuses in Iraq but
neither he nor his senior aides read it until pictures of the abuse were circulated to CBS
News last week.
Two of the central figures named in the report as most likely responsible for the abuses
are still in their jobs.
Added May 14:
More than 300 Iraqi Detainees Released from the Abu Ghraib Prison
The Red Cross had estimated that between 70 and 90 percent of Abu Ghraib detained were
arrested "by mistake".
