Men, Women, War & Abu Ghraib

Linda Chavez makes a good point:

The men and women who engaged in this behavior abused and humiliated their captives, dishonored their country and deserve severe punishment. But if we want to prevent this type of conduct from ever occurring again, we not only need to punish those responsible but also look at all the possible factors that might give occasion to such abuses — including the breakdown in discipline and unit cohesion that have gone hand in hand with gender integration in the military.
