Hidden prisoners

Military intelligence officials at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq ordered military police soldiers to keep several detainees hidden from the International Committee of the Red Cross, leaving a coded message on cell doors to indicate which detainees the visitors were not allowed to see or interview, according to court testimony here Wednesday.


Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has said he authorized keeping one soldier off the official rolls under unusual circumstances, but members of the Senate Armed Services Committee have expressed concern that the practice was more widespread than that.

Hmm. People are noticing that we haven't seen Rumfeld lately. Perhaps we should alert the International Red Cross?
