((Now a convicted criminal, former MP Charles Graner was the one being treated as a prisoner. He was led out away in handcuffs and leg irons...but still unwilling to say he was sorry -- inside the courtroom or outside. "I was a soldier. If I did anything wrong, here I am. Susan: 'Any regrets?' G: No..." In his sentencing hearing, Graner finally took the witness stand for almost three hours -- but not under oath, to avoid any cross-examination. He said military intelligence -- M-I -- set the tone for what to do inside Abu Ghraib prison -- Adding...a superior told him: "If MI ASKED YOU TO DO THIS, THEY'RE IN CHARGE, DO IT." Graner gave no explanation for these photos -- the naked human pyramid -- the detainee on a dog leash -- this act of sexual humiliation. When his lawyer asked, why he was smiling in so many photos. Graner told jurors: "There were a lot of things that we did that were so screwed up. If you didn't look at it as funny, you couldn't deal with it." At the end, he said: "I didn't enjoy it. A lot of it was wrong. A lot of it was criminal." Graner stood at attention as the sentence was read: After the jury left, Graner chuckled nervously and said, "that's what makes the world go round." When it was over, Graner's parents angrily said their son was made a scapegoat. "They weren't interested in the truth. My son was convicted the day President Bush went on television and said the seven bad apples disgraced the country." ))

That's what some scientists think anyway. They say it was extra sharp hearing and a sophisticated knowledge of their territory that saved them. Students at the park noticed that the behavior of birds and their cries suddenly changed before the waves hit. Park rangers say two-hundred elephants abruptly began running inland around the same time. One of th park's animal behaviorists said the animals were using a system of communication at a frequency far below the range of human hearing- one which can travel across vast distances.
