whatever, hadn't heard about this but it's hardly surprising:
Another sign of how poorly “Operation Iraqi Freedom” is going is that one of the mission’s chief goals now is a major expansion of Iraq’s prison system. In other words, the expectation is that Saddam Hussein’s old police state will be succeeded by a government that will lock up even more people.
Maybe they're just increasing space so that the system isn't so crowded. I mean, everything else in Iraq so far has been guided by such humanitarian concerns...
