STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE:  THE SCANDAL WAS A COVERUP -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY

You can kill people off-camera.  You can shoot people.  You can blow their heads off.  As long as its not on camera, you're okay.  But if it's on camera, you're done.  You know, torture didn't happen in those photographs.  That was humiliation.  That was softening up.  Torture happened during interrogations.  Guys go into interrogation and they are dead, and were killed, and they died.  That's where the torture happened.  We don't have photographs of that.

[TIM DUGAN, CIVILIAN INTERROGATOR CACI CORPORATION]  I just thought it was a bunch of schmuck MPs acting like idiots.  I don't think so anymore.  Not at all.  I think we have a bunch of kids getting shammed.  It's just cover-ups.  And people are afraid of culpability and ramifications of their actions, so there's nobody saying crap.  Except they are throwing a lot of people under the bus. 

[JANIS KARPINSKI, BRIGADIER GENERAL, 800TH MP BRIGADE] I received a phone call from a Pentagon reporter who said, "You were relieved from command."  So I said, "I haven't heard about it."  I didn't hear from General Helmley.  He didn't call me.  He didn't summon me to Washington, D.C. to be in front of his desk so he could relieve me. 

This is cowardice of a different kind.
