Janice Karpinski refuses to take the fall for Abu Ghraib:
“I have been told there’s a reliable witness who’s made a statement … indicating that not only was I not included in any of the meetings discussing interrogation operations, but specific measures were taken to ensure I would not have access to those facilities, that information or any of the details of interrogations at Abu Ghraib or anywhere else,” Karpinski said. She didn’t identify the witness.
“Correct,” Karpinski responded when asked if she thought there was a conspiracy at senior level to stop her knowing what was going on.
“From what I understand … it was people that had full knowledge of what was going on out at Abu Ghraib who knew that they had to keep Janis Karpinski from discovering any of those activities,” she added.
Asked whether she thought the conspiracy reached up to the Pentagon or the White House, she said: “The indication is that it may have.”
Drag the entire lousy bunch down with you, Janis!
