USATODAY.com - Family of Abu Ghraib detainees say abuse culprits should face death: "ABU GHRAIB, Iraq (AP) On the eve of the first court-martial in the Iraq prisoner abuse scandal, relatives of those still held at Abu Ghraib prison said Tuesday the only suitable punishment would be death illustrating the potential gap in expectations in the case. "

I think this is a rather unreasonable request. Yes, the abuse was awful and should not be allowed. Yes, those responsible should face consequences. I don't see how execution is a proportional response, however. They took pictures of detainees naked so they should be killed? I can't imagine the Iraqis would be as sanguine about it if Iraqis who abused Americans were summarily executed as a punishment.

What was done in that prison was a crime. Let's let the punishment fit the crime.
