First, Major General Geoffrey Miller, who the Pentagon sent to Iraq to "improve” interrogation procedures, states that that he never told Brigadier General Janice Karpinski, commander of the military prison system in Iraq, that he wanted to Gitmoize Iraq:
Brigadier General Karpinski says otherwise:
Now Miller, through military spokesman Brigadier General Mark Kimmett, is saying that he never suggested to Colonel Pappas, head of Military Intelligence at Abu Ghraib, that it would be appropriate to use dogs when interrogating prisoners:
Pappas says otherwise:
Clearly someone is not telling the truth, and since all three officers were interviewed under oath, Karpinski and Pappas by Army investigator Major General Antonio Taguba, and Miller by the Senate Armed Services Committee, someone has committed perjury. My bet is that the perjurer is Miller. The evidence so far, two versus one, suggests this. If Miller did lie under oath to the Senate, this is very serious.
