Why The Long Face, Charles? You Got Off Easy...

The blogosphere seems to agree that Spc. Graner got the kid glove treatment, but why? The Wall Street Journal opines that:

We doubt Specialist Graner's peers would have packed him off to prison for so long had he produced any evidence at all that his actions had something to do with interrogation practices approved by his superiors.

Andrew Sullivan has the exact opposite take -- that Graner's light sentence might have something to do with getting Graner to shut up about his superiors, who nobody expects to be prosecuted. The Punditocracy reports, you decide.
