NPR's Michele Norris talks with NPR's Ari Shapiro about Article 32 hearing for Pfc. Lynndie England. The hearing is a proceeding to decide whether she should face courts martial. England was a reservist who worked as a guard at Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad. Widely published photographs have shown her holding a leash attached to a naked prisoner, and otherwise apparently degrading prisoners. Testimony at the hearing included that of an Army investigator who said that England told him the photos were taken for fun.
