Wolfgang - I don't think that conspiracy theorizing is necessarily wrong. Depends entirely on sources (which are pretty sketchy due to the secrecy of the U.S. govt.) and the ability to put 2 and 2 together. In fact, all we can do is speculate as to what might be happening in Iraq.

Considering that at least two of the interrogators giving orders were, in fact, contractors, we may never unravel this web of deceit. All we can do is try. In doing so we reveal the ugliness of war and awaken others to the fact that their sons and daughters are taking part in less than honourable actions abroad.

When we learn more about the chain of command in the prison, we will learn that the U.S. govt. is capable of almost any kind of 'set-up' to avoid responsibility for acts of inhumanity. Rumsfeld has never had any respect for an international code of conduct or the opinions of other countries (even allies). His thinking is that of someone who believes he is all-powerful and above the law.
