The amendment, which critics said had no power to stop the U.S. military from torturing terrorist suspects, followed years of reports of torture in overseas prisons, such as the abuse (Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse) at the Abu Ghraib prison (Abu Ghraib prison). Relatedly, a report of CIA secret prisons in a November 2, 2005 ''Washington Post'' article generated further controversy. Abu Anas al-Shami was killed by an American missile strike against his car in September 2004 (the exact date is disputed) near Abu Ghraib, The Challenge of Terrorism and Religious Extremism in Jordan, Center for Contemporary Conflict, US Navy (United States Navy) when he had been sent by Zarqawi to the Sadr City area of Baghdad.

She was dressed in military garments and played electric guitar for the performance. As she sang the song, the backdrops displayed scenes of war and sex which were scrambled to appear as if they have been shot with a camcorder. Kelefa Sanneh from ''The New York Times'' described the performance and the video backdrops as being reminiscent of the prisons in Abu Ghraib. *Sure; with Guantanamo (w:Guantanamo) and Abu Ghraib (w:Abu Ghraib), and headlines about Michael B.

Abu Ghraib

'''Abu Ghraib''' ( , ''Abū Ghurayb'' ) is a city in the Al Anbar Governorate of Iraq, located just west of Baghdad's city center, or northwest of Baghdad International Airport. It has a population of 189,000 (2003). The old road to Jordan passes through Abu Ghraib. The government of Iraq created the city and Abu Ghraib District in 1944.

The placename has been translated as "father (Abu (Arabic term)) of little crows" (in the sense of "place abundant in small crows"), but this translation has been suspected of being an "eggcorn", and the name may be related to gharb "west" instead, (see also etymology of the word Arab).

Abu Ghraib was known for the Abu Ghraib Infant Formula Plant, which Western intelligence agencies (Intelligence agency) perennially claimed to be a biological weapons production facility. The plant was built in 1980 and painted with a dappled camouflage pattern during the Iran–Iraq War. It was bombed during the Gulf War, and the Iraqi government allowed CNN reporter Peter Arnett to film the destroyed building (Peter Arnett#Baby milk factory controversy) along with a conspicuous hand-painted sign that read, "baby milk factory". Iraq partially rebuilt the facility afterward, and US Secretary of State Colin Powell cited it again as a weapons production plant in the run-up to the Iraq War. An examination of suspected weapons facilities by the Iraq Survey Group later determined that the plant, in disuse for some time, housed discarded infant formula, but found no evidence of weapons production.

The city is also the site of Abu Ghraib prison, which was one of the sites where political dissidents were incarcerated under former ruler Saddam Hussein. Thousands of these dissidents were tortured and executed (capital punishment). After Saddam Hussein's fall, the Abu Ghraib prison was used by American forces in Iraq. In 2003, Abu Ghraib prison earned international notoriety for the torture and abuses (Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse) by members of the United States Army during the post-invasion period (Post-invasion Iraq, 2003–present).
