The U.S. closed one of the most controversial chapters of the Iraq war Thursday when it transferred control of its last remaining prison to the Iraqi government. U.S. military officials handed over the keys to Camp Cropper, located near Baghdad's international airport. It's been renamed Karkh Prison, and will operate under Iraqi authority.
