PFC Lynndie England will face a courts martial on 17 counts of abuse and indecent acts arising from the mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison.

It appears her defense may be shifting from one of acting on orders of higher-ups to being "led astray by some of the male reservists charged in the case."

You can read her statements of her despicable conduct here and here, and judge for yourselves if this sounds like someone who was "led astray."

More of the specific acts by England and her merry band of perverts are here. Among the images we shouldn't forget:
