I guess it's kind of like New Coke: The New, Improved Abu Ghraib! No torture here, no siree!
BAGHDAD (AP) -- A senior justice official says the Iraqi government will reopen the notorious Abu Ghraib prison next month, but it will have a new name.
The announcement comes as the U.S. military has begun handing over detainees in its custody to the Iraqis under a new security agreement.
Deputy Justice Minister Busho Ibrahim says the renovated facility will be called Baghdad's Central Prison because the previous name has left a "bitter feeling inside Iraqis' hearts."
Gee, ya think?
