Dubya has yet to ever correctly pronounce "cavalry", United States Army War College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, May 24, 2004

Under the dictator, prisons like Abu Gar reb were symbols of death and torture. That same prison became a symbol of disgraceful conduct by a few American troops who dishonored our country and "disregardered" our values. America will fund the construction of a modern, maximum security prison. When that prison is completed, detainees at Abu Garomp will be relocated. Then, with the approval of the Iraqi government, we will demolish the Abu Garab prison, as a fitting symbol of Iraq's new beginning.
