FORT HOOD, Texas - Defense lawyers sought leniency for Pfc. Lynndie England at a hearing Tuesday to determine her punishment in the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal, with a psychologist testifying that the reservist was oxygen-deprived at birth, speech impaired and had trouble learning to read.

I believe that Lynndie England is 20-22 years old. This means that she was born circa 1983. Most delivery suites in the US at that time had the ability to deliver oxygen to newborns that were having trouble breathing. Been there; done that. So, what the hell does it mean that she was oxygen deprived? Furthermore, if she was this impaired, what was she doing in the US Army? Or, is that a rhetorical question.
