Greatest crime here is sheer stupidity

Re: "Greatest crime here is sheer stupidity," Ian Robinson, May 09, 2004, Calgary Sun

The flippant tone Robinson employs to discuss torture of Iraqis by U.S. military police officers at Abu Ghraib prison appears to make light of it all. You'd think Robinson was describing X-rated outtakes from the Jerry Springer Show. Were he, too, languishing at Walter Reed Military Hospital, missing limbs lost in combat in Iraq, watching his sacrifice eclipsed by the vile antics of pornsters and their handlers, I doubt he'd be keen to try and elicit a few laughs from the whole sordid affair.
