WASHINGTON, Dec. 27 - The administration of President Bush, right, suggested Tuesday that prisons in where hundreds of detainees apparently were abused were only "nominally" under the control of the central government in Baghdad.
While the central government, with U.S. help, is trying to take charge of these prisons, the Interior ministry which runs them may have its own way of doing things, suggested State Department spokesman Adam Ereli.
"The problem has clearly not been solved and the problem is widespread," Ereli said.
D.H.: Meanwhile, the CIA is investigating itself over irregularities in its "rendition" of suspects in secret prisons worldwide. AP-Yahoo News story, "CIA Probes Renditions of Terror Suspects." Sounds to me like the pot calling the kettle black.
