Pentagon Gets Last Chance to Hide Abuse



The Pentagon was given one last chance by a federal judge Wednesday to keep thousands of photos of abused detainees hidden from public. Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein of New York said that the Secretary of Defense has until March 17 to provide sufficient evidence that “the release of a particular photograph would result in the harm envisioned.”

The photos include images of U.S. soldiers pointing guns at suspected terrorists’ heads or simulating assault, as reported last December. The images come from 203 investigations into detainee abuse.

“While the photos show disturbing images from the Bush administration’s watch, it is the Obama administration that has allowed them to remain buried,” Tim Mak and Noah Shachtman wrote of the fight. They may not be buried much longer.

  1. I’m not saying I would agree things were right, but, have you seen the mosque that was turned into a torture chamber. What these animals have done to people of the world since the 7th century, and continued thru today. They are taking the world over by numbers as well as murder and the Christians burned alive in cages. No the US has every right your defend herself and if that is the name of the game islam is playing.clean our streets of Islam trash before some bleeding heart judge allows sharia law in any capacity in our borders.
