The Americans will be punished (and justifiably), but they will come to justice sooner than the Iraqis that actually tortured people by dipping them into acid and gouging out the eyes of one prisoner's children to get him to reveal information. It's hard to see the call for the blood of people who forced prisoners to strip naked and ignore the real torturers.

Most likely some of the Iraqis being abused were the torturers of the former regime. That doesn't make the abuse acceptable, in my opinion. But I do wonder what kind of justice they would receive under a regime like the one they served.
