Breaking story: Former U.S. Army Brigadier General Janis Karpinski told a Spanish newspaper that she has evidence that Donald Rumsfeld specifically approved the torture techniques used at Abu Ghraib. Karpinski also said that Rumsfeld further violated the Geneva Conventions by not registering all prisoners. She said last week that she is prepared to testify against Rumsfeld.
