The Worst General

Greyhawk at Mudville (a blog that you should be checking everyday) sees that BG Colonel (ret) Janis Karpinski is spouting off about Abu Ghraib again in reference to a new film sure to tell the "truth".  Greyhawk adds this about former leader of Abu Ghraib:

Some day someone might want to do a case study of a failure of command for a Service Academy or military professional development course - the Karpinski case would be useful for this, and valuable to students at various levels.

Agreed.  So, I started digging around with Google to see what Janis is up to these days and look what I found.  At Sarah Lawrence College, in just a few days, Karpinski is going to discuss women at war:

Women’s History Conference Focuses On Women And War; Janis Karpinski, Commanding General At Abu Graib, To Speak

Ninth Annual Women’s History Month Conference
“Women at War: Soldiers, Sisters, Survivors”
Conference
Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3
Heimbold Visual Arts Center 

“Women at War: Soldiers, Sisters, Survivors” is the subject of Sarah Lawrence College’s Ninth Annual Women’s History Conference taking place March 2 and 3. The two-day conference leads off with keynote speaker Janis Karpinski, former commanding general at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and author of the book, One Woman’s Army: The Commanding General of Abu Ghraib Tells her Story. General Karpinski had a command of 3,400 soldiers who were in charge of the incarceration of Iraqi detainees and, after his capture, Saddam Hussein.

Panel and roundtable discussions will address topics including gendering war, waging peace, changes in military recruiting strategies, women, religion and war, women war and national identity, war and rape, women warriors and writing war.

“Women at War: Soldiers, Sisters, Survivors” is co-sponsored by The Westchester Chapter of the United Nations Association of the USA and The Bronxville League of Women Voters (also serving Eastchester, Tuckahoe, Yonkers and Mt. Vernon).

I am disturbed that, of all the women warriors out there, Janis Karpinski is the one that Sarah Lawrence College is bringing to the table.  There's so many others to choose from - Kayla Williams, Leigh Ann Hester, Jessica Nicholson, Grey Eagle, etc.

BTW, Grey Eagle has female soldier stories posted.
