She has her reputation at stake. IF she can get some court of law to that that higher-ups knew what was going-on and circumvented her command authority, then she bears no moral responsibility for any abuses. If she cannot find somebody crdible to make that claim then she was either derelict in her duty buy not knowing or she was complicit by not stopping it.

As it stands from American courts martial in this case, the highest it went up the food chain was to a Lt Col, IIRC. I think they busted him because he should have known what was going on but claimed he did not.
