Is it me, or is this just another fine example of life imitating art?
A lawyer for Charles Graner, accused ringleader in the Iraq prisoner abuse scandal, on Monday compared piling naked prisoners into pyramids to cheerleader shows and said leashing inmates was also acceptable prisoner control.
“Don’t cheerleaders all over America form pyramids six to eight times a year. Is that torture?” Guy Womack, Graner’s attorney, said in opening arguments to the 10-member U.S. military jury at the reservist sergeant’s court-martial.
Charles, buddy, you might consider doing whatever it takes — coupons or a bake sale — to get a better lawyer. Otherwise you may as well start measuring for curtains in your new cell away from home.
