Pentagon To release New Images Of Prisoner Abuse

Friday, 24 April 2009

RL) -- The Obama administration has agreed to release dozens of photographs depicting alleged past abuses of detainees at U.S. prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The agreement follows a legal suit filed in 2004 by a prominent human rights group, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), requesting the government release 42 photos or demonstrate reasons for not doing so.

The ACLU said on April 23 that the court considering the case has received a letter from the Justice Department agreeing to the request.

According to the ACLU, the photos will be made available by May 28 and include not just the original 42 requested but a "substantial number" of other images.

The photos, taken between 2001 and 2006, are reported not to be as shocking as those taken of abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq in 2003. Leaks of those photos to the media created public outrage around the world and brought widespread criticism of Washington's handling of the war on terror.

But some of the new photos -- which show alleged abuses at prisons other than Abu Ghraib -- are reported to depict U.S. service members intimidating or threatening detainees by pointing weapons at them.

Amrit Singh, a lawyer for the ACLU, told U.S. media that the photos will "constitute visual proof that, unlike the Bush administration's claim, the abuse was not confined to Abu Ghraib and was not aberrational."

After the leak of the Abu Ghraib photos , the Bush administration said that the service members involved in the scandal were acting independently of higher authority. {more}

Let's hear another few weeks of debate in the controlled media about how torture saved Los Angeles. What led us to torture? The false flag of 9/11 and the lies of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. Where's the release of the documents related to these crimes?

The sickness of torture can't compare to killing your own and over a million foreigners for profit and land and resource theft. The same psychopaths who ordered torture are still on the loose and using every tool at their disposal to keep the public distracted.

Obama and his minions and masters continue the cover up with feigned indignation.



    I've been observing the psychology and political-behaviour of the American society. And i've been observing a dangerous trend in America, that trend is that many poor americans are supporting the far-right movements a lot more than leftist parties. And that means that out of this economic crisis a neo-nazi American Adolf Hitler backed by popular support could rise real easy in America a lot easier than a leftist reformist like JFK, Luther King, etc.

  2. There's something like 14 or so Gitmo prisoners missing from that island paradise and other CIA torture palaces--Probably more like 140, but I digress.

    I bet that more than a few aren't "missing," unless you count setting on the ocean floor, still dressed in your concrete shoes, missing.

    Some died while getting enhanced to death and were sunk in the ocean to destroy evidence of murder.

    Others were tossed overboard while still alive, in view of other prisoners, to loosen some tongues.

    The CIA did something similar in the Vietnam War, tossing suspected Viet Cong out of helicopters to make the rest talk and I imagine they haven't strayed far from their roots.
