Update: Seems I was mistaken about the worst that the guards are accused of--apparently some were forcing prisoners to simulate sex acts, etc. That's way different than the threatening with non-existent execution. That is indeed degrading and dehumanizing. Disgusting.

My contention that this should have been kept quiet stands. This should not have been treated as a simple disciplinary matter, as the Army has foolishly been acting. This is a STRATEGIC failure, and it should have been kept quiet at all costs, hopefully until after the elections in January, and if not at the very least until after the June 30th transfer of power.
