Brigadier General Janis Karpinski…

…has been out very aggressively defending herself in TV interviews. I suspect she would be getting much tougher treatment from her interviewers if they had read the Taguba report. Here is one item from it:

“14. (U) During the course of this investigation I conducted a lengthy interview with BG Karpinski that lasted over four hours, and is included verbatim in the investigation Annexes. BG Karpinski was extremely emotional during much of her testimony. What I found particularly disturbing in her testimony was her complete unwillingness to either understand or accept that many of the problems inherent in the 800th MP Brigade were caused or exacerbated by poor leadership and the refusal of her command to both establish and enforce basic standards and principles among its soldiers.”
