Gitmo is slang for Guantanamo Bay, where many Iraqi and Afghani prisoners
are held. Karpinski is Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski, who (until she recently
was relieved) commanded Abu Ghraib prison.
"Karpinski said that during a visit to Iraq in September, Miller - still the
commander at the Guantanamo Bay prison - spoke of wanting to "Gitmoize" Abu
Ghraib by applying the Cuban facility's regimented detention and
"He talked about Gitmoizing in terms of what the (military police) were
going to do; he was going to select the MPs, they were going to receive
special training," she said. "
