Shocking Abu Ghraib revelation 

NEWS FLASH: White House officials wanted Abu Ghraib intelligence!

The head of the interrogation center at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq told an Army investigator in February that he understood some of the information being collected from prisoners there had been requested by "White House staff," according to an account of his statement obtained by The Washington Post.
This is truly shocking stuff. What use could the White House possibly have for intelligence collected from Iraqi prisoners? Why would they want to know what militants and terrorists have to say? The mind boggles. Obviously, since they wanted the information, the White House officials are to blame for the abuses at Abu Ghraib. If they didn't want to know anything, then the abuses never would have happened.

Sarcasm off.

Seriously, why is this a story? It would be a much bigger deal if the head of the interrogation center "understood that the information being collected from prisoners was of no interest to anyone in the administration." Wouldn't it?
