The prison in western Baghdad was a torture center under Saddam Hussein before photographs of American soldiers abusing Iraqis there in 2003 gave it a new notoriety and made it a touchstone for Arab and Muslim rage over the U.S. occupation.
Saddam made Abu Ghraib famous, the US made it infamous. It's still a good idea to close it, even if it is 3 years too late. I sincerely hope this isn't just a PR move and the torturing moves to "Camp Freedom" where "guests" can get "Freedom Tickles".
