Kerry on Abu Ghraib


“As president I will not be the last to know what is going on in my command. I will demand accountability for those who serve, and I will take responsibility for their actions.”

“And I will do everything that I can in my power to repair the damage that this has caused to America’s standing in the world and to the ideals for which we stand.”

That sounds about right.

No mention yet of whether Bush or Rumsfeld have read the Taguba Report detailing the abuses. But Bush is standing by his man:

“He will stay in my Cabinet.”
