A reader who read the Taguba report more carefully than I did noticed the following finding and recommendation:
3. (U) I find that there is sufficient credible information to warrant an Inquiry UP Procedure 15, AR 381-10, US Army Intelligence Activities, be conducted to determine the extent of culpability of MI personnel, assigned to the 205th MI Brigade and the Joint Interrogation and Debriefing Center (JIDC) at Abu Ghraib (BCCF). Specifically, I suspect that COL Thomas M. Pappas, LTC Steve L. Jordan, Mr. Steven Stephanowicz, and Mr. John Israel were either directly or indirectly responsible for the abuses at Abu Ghraib (BCCF) and strongly recommend immediate disciplinary action as described in the preceding paragraphs as well as the initiation of a Procedure 15 Inquiry to determine the full extent of their culpability. (ANNEX 36)
The report was submitted on March 9. Two months later, the “immediate” disciplinary action recommended has not taken place, and the Procedure 15 inquiry wasn’t started until late April, after the Pentagon knew the story and photos were going to hit the streets. That’s not “due process;” that’s lax discipline.
