    No, it's not just an Army problem. It's something that involved intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, and most likely the White House. Not to justify what the guards themselves did, but they were on the lowest rung of a much bigger operation.

    Lynch was in a Humvee. Apparently, Gunny is right about the jammed gun.

    On April 24, 2007 she testified in front of Congress that she had never fired her weapon; her M16 rifle jammed, as did all weapons systems assigned to her unit, and she had been knocked unconscious when her vehicle crashed.[2]

    True dat. But it's a bit murky how the charade snowballed.

    Soon after her rescue, Pentagon officials disputed a report appearing in the Washington Post that Lynch had fought back, and the first official report of Lynch's actions during her capture released by the Pentagon weeks later said that she did not appear to have fought back against her captors, in contradiction of earlier Pentagon press releases. According to one former Pentagon official, the stories of her supposed heroics that day were spread by the news media and Congressmen from West Virginia were instrumental in pushing the Pentagon to award her honors based on reports of her actions during her capture.[21][22]

    Lynch herself did nothing to dissuade heroine status until months had passed.

    Months after returning [to the US], Lynch finally began speaking to the public. Her statements tended to be sharply critical of the original story that was reported by the Washington Post. When asked about her heroine status, "That wasn't me. I'm not about to take credit for something I didn't do ... I'm just a survivor."[23]

    In addition, she neither recalled nor supported an allegation published in her authorized biography.

    The authorized biography, I Am A Soldier Too: The Jessica Lynch Story, by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Rick Bragg states that Lynch had been raped during her captivity, based on medical records and her pattern of injuries.[17] Lynch does not recall any sexual assault and was "adamantly opposed to including the rape claim in the book", but that Bragg wore her down and told her that "people need to know that this is what can happen to women soldiers".[18]

    All in all, a disturbing chain of events on many levels.

    Imprisonment isn't torture, but I think most people would object to a parent who locked his child in a room for 18 years.

    Not a very good analogy.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Yes, I saw that too. But doesn't it seem odd that "all the units weapons systems were jammed" and not just Lynch's? Because that would suggest that it was something else besides not just cleaning their weapons. Unless of course the unit was never trained to clean their guns since they were just a supply unit. I dunno, you military experts would know more about that stuff than I would.

    Her Army unit was involved in maintenance and supply. I highly doubt that she/they received proper weapons training. A desert environment can be very demanding on assault rifles that aren't well cleaned and maintained. When training in the Negev, I'd sometimes place black electrical tape over the muzzle to minimize corrosive sand contamination. The first round travels down a clean barrel and removes the tape.

    Exactly. Because it's not like we've ever heard of his employer doing it, or defending it, or anything like that.

    Water-boarding is primarily a CIA activity and has precious little to do with military personal.

    It's also quite disingenuous to construct a faux linkage between water-boarding and government employment. Doing so amounts to smear by association on a grand scale.
