FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Defense lawyers sought leniency for Pfc. Lynndie England at a hearing Tuesday to determine her punishment in the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal, with a psychologist testifying that the reservist was oxygen-deprived at birth, speech impaired and had trouble learning to read. A defense lawyer said the pscychologist's testimony helped England by establishing that her ability to reason was lower than that of her comrades. 'She is clearly in a different mental capacity ... than any of the others accused,' he said...

Do you think Lynndie England being deprived of oxygen at birth was the reason she tortured Iraqi citizens?

It could be, but she shouldn't escape punishment just because of that.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 1:00:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
excuses, excuses.....
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 1:01:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
WTF??? Then that should excuse why I got a D on my final exam!!!
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 1:02:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
who cares? She gives our military and our country a bad name. America likes to think that our prisons and interrogation techniques are so much more humane than other places, but with people like her around..so not true

Well I think alot of people would be surprised just how far seemingly normal people will go when recieving orders from an authority figure. I think situational rather than dispositional factors may be to blame.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 2:13:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that's grasping at straws.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 2:14:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
i think it has more to do with her commander-in-chief being deprived of brains and morals..
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 2:26:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sounds like the desparate ploy of a defense lawyer to me.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 2:53:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
you know, if this was the other way around, and the army or some company refused to hire her because of her being deprived of oxygen, she would be arguing that she could reson the same as her comrades.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 3:01:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 3:26:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
she makes people like me and my husband ashamed to be apart of the army (only sometimes) she knew what she was doing no question about it
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 3:27:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ugh, if thats the reason then I'm the Queen of frigging Sheba!
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/2/05 - 12:45:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
no that's the dumbest excuse ever!
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/2/05 - 12:50:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
frankly, the real reason she did it - because humiliating prisoners is FUN! - isn't much better.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/10/05 - 4:49:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
No shes demented thats why.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/10/05 - 4:51:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I think that's a BS excuse.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/22/05 - 12:02:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Pff, no! Like everyone else said, excuses...

--EXACTLY!
Pain and torture are PART OF WAR. Our fearless (and brainless) leader chose war as our answer for Iraq. war is about destroying the enemy. and since we HAVE to be at war for some reason, she is doing her "job". Iraq does the same kind of slandering and abuse to our POW'S. we bitch and complain and bitch and complain about how somebody somewhere under a high stress situation was ORDERED to do this, whether she had FUN is no ones business but hers.

Whoa!?...thats all im going to say..hahahaahaha..and that
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 8/8/05 - 11:58:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
OMG's what a pathetic excuse.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 8/22/05 - 9:18:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
If she's capable enough to be in the military then she's capable enough to stand up and admit she was wrong.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 8/22/05 - 11:58:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
If what her lawyer said was true, then her medical condition should have barred her from enlistment in the first place.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 8/25/05 - 2:04:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
That's a load of absolute BS
