The Outcome

leave a comment »

The outcome of all these soldiers got court martialled.

All of these US soldiers were dishonorably discharged from the U.S military for dereliction of duty, maltreatment, aggravated assault, and battery among other charges:

  • Javal Davies: 6 months imprisonment
  • Roman Krol: 10 moth’s imprisonment
  • Charles Graner: 10 Years imprisonment
  • Lynndie England: 3 Years imprisonment (was paroled after 521 days)
  • Sabrina Harman: 6 month’s imprisonment
  • Megan Ambuhl: “dereliction of duty and sentenced to reduction in rank to private and loss of a half-month’s pay”
  • Ivan Frederick: 8 years 6 months imprisonment

Brigadier General Karpinski, who was in charge of Abu Ghraib and other Iraqi prisons at the time, was “demoted to colonel and subsequently retired”. She was the only “high-ranking” official to face serious punishment.

When it came to General Geoffrey Miller, he was promoted to Deputy Commanding General for detainee operations in Iraq. He even received the Distinguished Service Medal at the pentagon’s Hall of Heroes.

Lynndie England, who was ‘nobody’ before this scandal, released a biography when she came out of prison, ironically enough, called “Tortured”. It was written by Gary S. Winkler, and authorized by Lynndie England.
