Lynndie England blames the media

Posted by karmalily on March 20, 2008

Lynndie England, one of the people responsible for the Abu Ghraib scandal, is once again putting the blame somewhere else.

I feel sorry and wrong about what I did. But it would not have escalated to what it did all over the world if it wouldn’t have been for someone leaking it to the media.

Obviously it’s okay so long as people don’t know about it. Because, according to England, “what we did happens in war.”

She also makes the statement that there were worse pictures the public didn’t get to see, and that, “if it had been broken by the news without the pictures it wouldn’t have been that big.”

So, as you can see, it was the media’s fault that it was such a big deal. Not the people responsible, because that’s just what happens during a war.
