Seen This Picture Before?

An anecdote of detainee abuse:

Even though military investigators learned soon after Mr. Dilawar's death
that he had been abused by at least two interrogators, the Army's criminal
inquiry 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's see if we've got that right: Abuse occurs in an "institution"; those in authority are slow to examine the behavior. The abusers, instead of being punished are reassigned -- where reports of even more abuse come to light.

So who's running the U.S. war prisoner policy -- Bernard Cardinal Law?
