Judge orders new Abu Ghraib photos released

News & Politics

"Judge Alvin Hellerstein called 'bullshit' on the government's claim that releasing photos depicting the abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib -- even redacted photos where the prisoners' faces and other identifiable characteristics were blurred -- would violate the Geneva Conventions rule against humiliating prisoners," writes sukabi. "I guess he doesn't buy the hypocrisy either...Which clears the way for this: 'Dems introduce bill aiming to create committee to investigate abuse.'" (AllSpinZone)
