Judge orders release of Abu Ghraib photos, again

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Man, bad timing for the Bush administration. Lynndie England convicted, the snuff-for-porn photos come out this same week, and now this. Photos photos photos.

But hey, once the really bad Abu Ghraib photos come out maybe the Pentagon can argue that it's not really clear that those are in fact US soldiers or real Iraqis they're torturing.

Saying the United States "does not surrender to blackmail," a judge ruled Thursday that pictures of detainee abuse at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison must be released over government claims that they could damage America's image.

U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein ordered the release of certain pictures in a 50-page decision that said terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan have proven they "do not need pretexts for their barbarism."
