Baghdad, Iraq - The US military is considering abandoning the notorious, overcrowded Abu Ghraib prison. "The reason we would like to move our operations from Abu Ghraib is that it has been regularly targeted with attacks from insurgents. The new facility would be within the larger Baghdad International Airport complex, making it less susceptible to attacks," said Lt. Col. Barry Johnson, a spokesman for Iraq Detention Operations.
