General Myers & the Prison Scandal

I managed to catch a bit of General Richard Myers on Stephanopolous's show yesterday. What astonished me was the General's display of willful ignorance: first, the frank acknowledgement that he had not read either today's damning Seymour Hersh piece, or Major General Taguba's 53-page report (completed in "late February") on which it was based; then this statement:

"I would say that categorically," Myers told ABC's "This Week."

"There is no, no evidence of systematic abuse in this system at all."

Billmon, ever-ready with the perfect headline, captures it this way:
Foxes: Henhouse Abuses Rare

Notwithstanding all those feathers lying around
