"Murtha takes aim at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo."

“Now that he is back in power, [Rep. John] Murtha (D-PA) wants to make sure Abu Ghraib prison is shut down, and he is sending his staff to inspect conditions at Guantanamo in Cuba.” Referring to the upcoming military supplemental legislation, Murtha said, “I will try to shut it [Abu Ghraib] down in this bill.” President Bush “vowed in a May 2004 speech to build ‘a modern, maximum security prison’ and then destroy Abu Ghraib prison — with the Iraq government’s approval.”
