To me Abu Ghraib respresent one of the many moral low points of the US involvement in Iraq. Not quite sure we lost our moral soul here thants to Rummy et al. but Im sure its one fo the focal points. We simply changed ownership and continued with the tactics Saddam used :shk:

I fail to understand why they would keep it open at all given its connection to both periods of brutality and human rights violations. Far better to start fresh and turn the site into something far more productive.
