Don't Destroy Abu(se) Ghraib

President Bush should not authorize the U.S. military to destroy Abu Ghraib prison, site of U.S. abuses against Iraqi detainees (that we know). Why not? Because it is not Bush's to destroy. Let the Iraqis decide what to do with it. And then let them do it. Maybe someone will buy it and convert it into a museum of state horrors for all to see. At any rate, it's not"our" decision, even if the Iraqi"government" the UN creates says it is. What should the U.S. do? Give the keys to some Iraqi on the way out—of the country.
