Army generals: Iraq prison has two dozen 'ghost detainees'. Army generals said Thursday at least two dozen unregistered "ghost detainees" may have been held at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, but they don't know the number for certain because the CIA did not cooperate with their investigation into abuses. Army generals said Thursday at least two dozen unregistered "ghost detainees" may have been held at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, but they don't know the number for certain because the CIA did not cooperate with their investigation into abuses.
Senators said the CIA's lack of cooperation was unacceptable and that they would press the agency to provide the Army with the documents it needs.

"The situation with the CIA and ghost soldiers is beginning to look like a bad movie," said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
