FAYE BOWERS writes in the Christian Science Monitor about the lessons of Abu Ghraib: With decreasing rank comes increasing responsibility. The lower your level in the military chain of command, the higher your level of accountability when things go wrong. The more stripes you have on your uniform, the fewer the consequences for failures of military policy. At the highest levels, you have no responsibility at all for the actions of those under your command.
