Harlingen, Texas, August 30, 2005: The Miami Herald had another Abu Ghraib story this past Saturday. In an Associated Press article by Charles J. Hanley, the headline announced, “Abu Ghraib general describes her Iraq tour”
The article’s opening paragraph reads, “Iraqi prisoners could lift their doors right off their hinges.

S. commanders didn’t bother telling their troops they’d be stuck in Iraq for months more than advertised.”
