Abu Ghraib to reopen - complete with children's playground


www.telegraph.co .uk

Now, nearly five years after its role in one of the world's biggest human rights abuse scandals, Iraq's Abu Ghraib jail has re-opened with a promise of decent conditions for inmates - including a gym, computer chatroom and hair salon.

The prison, which earned global notoriety in 2004 after US jailers filmed themselves tormenting and sexually abusing Iraqi prisoners, was shut down two years ago when America handed control of it to the new Iraqi government. Iraqi and US officials, who believed its closure would end what had become a symbolic rallying point for the anti-US insurgency, moved its inmates to another facility on the Kuwait border.

Heh...

The "family-friendly", NEW Abu Ghraib, complete with state of the art facilities to pamper prisoners and kiddies alike!

Kind of strange that anyone would WANT to make this a cozy facility after all of the atrocities that were commited within its walls.

Hopefully all of this extravegance is not being funded by US, but it would not surprise me in the least if it were...
