An interesting connection. A report on NPR suggests the possibility that Maj. Gen. Antonio Taguba's
scathing report on the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison may have been affected in some way by the fact that his father, Sergeant Tomas Taguba, was himself a POW in WWII
In fact, as a prisoner of war, he was part of the notorious 'Bataan Death March'
Who knows what played into this one man's role in this story now unfolding. But it's hard to imagine this memory of his father's time as a POW didn't play upon his mind at some point in his investigation.
