60 Minutes first broke the news of the Abu Ghraib scandal in Iraq in a report on April 28, 2004. "When [Secretary of Defense Donald] Rumsfeld first learned that there were pictures extant of naked, humiliated, and terrified prisoners being abused by cheerful Americans, he said, according to an official who was present, 'I didn't know you were allowed to bring cameras into a prison!' "

 – Andrew Cockburn, Rumsfeld, 194
