former brigade chaplain for the 800th MP Brigade in Iraq, talks about the people involved in the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and the media coverage the scandal has received. Mr. Cannon argues that what happened at Abu Ghraib is a reflection of the decline in ethics within American society as a whole. He says that the media has presented a very narrow picture of what happened at the prison and has thus effectively mislead the public into thinking that the problem lies within the military or with President Bush. Mr. Cannon also talks about the recent decision in the Lyndie England trial and the overall war in Iraq. The talk was hosted by the Boiling Springs First Baptist Church in South Carolina. Includes Q&A.
