By the way, Smith wants us to know that Abu Ghraib is also a "tired" story.
Smith may consider Abu Ghraib to be old news, but he can't say the same for the abuse that reportedly occurred at Camp Nama. The abuse at Camp Nama was first reported this weekend.
According to the AP, the military's elite Task Force 6-26 was beating Iraqi prisoners with rifle butts and engaging in other abuse at Camp Nama. Even worse, this abuse
intensified in early 2004 and continued after photographs of abuse at Abu Ghraib were made public in April 2004, belying Pentagon assertions that abuse was limited to a small group of reservists at the notorious detention center.
