Army pfc Willie Brand beat two Afghan "detainees" to death at Bagram in 2002. His punishment? He's being demoted to private. That's it. He was actually convicted of one of the beatings, and his punishment is the same as that for any poor shmuck who wanders into an Army recruiting station and signs a few papers. "Join the Army! We'll treat you like we treat torturer/murderers!"

Of course, none of Brand's "superiors" are being charged with any thing.

The war of terror continues.
