Graner says he complained to the chain of command, saying he did not agree with the way Iraqi detainees were being treated. The 36 year old says military intelligen

My client is certainly a scapegoat as well - I think all 7 of them are." Graner - the so-called ring leader, is guilty of five charges of abusing prisoners. On the stand, Grander stopped short of apologizing, but told the jury, quote, "I did not enjoy what I did there, I acknowledge a lot of it was wrong and I acknowledge a lot of it was criminal."
(Standup) It took the jury two hours to reach the 10 year prison sentence. Graner had hoped to stay in the army, saying he still had something to offer. Reporting from Ft. Hood, Texas, Jay Gormely, for CBS News.))
