Lack of Training? Or Surplus of It?

Talkleft describes an atrocity:

TalkLeft: Teaching Prisoner Abuse A US soldier “sustained a traumatic brain injury that left him with a seizure disorder. Military records confirm that his injury “was due to soldier playing role as a detainee who was uncooperative.”

TalkLeft asks the obvious — but very serious — question:

A “training” exercise implies teaching and supervision. Who supervised the senseless beating of a soldier? And what, exactly, was being taught?

Just a few bad apples? If only.
