Paging George Orwell

So, Rummy makes a surprise visit to Iraq today - to Abu Ghraib prison, no less. That's actually a good thing. Leaders should poke their heads out of the foxhole every now and again. According to reports, Rummy promised that he "was determined that those in the wrong be punished."

Again, good for him.

What I found to be either mildly amusing or downright creepy (depending on given mood of the day) was this statement:

...a new complex of outdoor camps is going to open soon on the grounds outside the main prison building. It will be called "Camp Redemption," he said...

Like I said, creepy. Kind of like the moniker, "Homeland Security".
