So...We're "turning over" Abu Grahib prison to the Iraqis.
of course we'll transfer our prisoners to our new facility located near what used to be known as Saddam International Airport before we took over ownership of it.

I guess this is an example of the Iraqi people "standing up" to take responsibility. Kind of like throwing them the keys to the family minivan for a spin around the block....after Dad's new Cadillac came in.

Will the grateful Iraqis now take to the streets with flowers and kisses after this magnanimous gift?
Will there be a big ceremony and photo-op with a huge prop key?
Will they rename it "The George W Bush Torture Center" in honor of their liberator?

What do we have to do to please these people next?...Hand over our oil and leave?

And Gen Pace said he "couldn't paint a happy face on the situation" there.
Maybe it'll help to put one on their new flag over Abu Grahib.

1. hey, they needed to replace those 7 smaller torture centers
found in Iraq over the past 6 months - with hundreds of Sunni innocents being bloodied, broken and killed.
Abu Grhaib worked before, why not use it again as Iraqi's torture central?

SO, we are pleased to report that 13 Iraqis were shot by the government? this is progress? Oh goody.
Perhaps we will see that domestically as well, with Patriot 2

2. Funny, but I don't think the Iraqi people will recognise the
magnaminity of our gesture of giving their new government a prison.

3. at least it has been well used.
I agree, though that the common man or woman will hate the idea. That won't stop the growing sectarian warfare.
