Pentagon to release 'abuse images'

There are 4 comments on the english.aljazeera.net story from Apr 24, 2009, titled Pentagon to release 'abuse images'. In it, english.aljazeera.net reports that:

The Pentagon has said it will release hundreds of photographs showing alleged abuse by US personnel of "war on terror" detainees, officials have said.

The US department of defence is to release the images, some of which were taken in Iraq and Afghanistan, by May 28 in response to legal action filed by a US civil rights group.

The photographs come from more than 60 criminal investigations between 2001-2006 and are of military personnel suspected of abusing detainees, officials said on Friday.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has spent years pursuing the government in the courts to obtain the pictures.

"These photographs provide visual proof that prisoner abuse by US personnel was not aberrational but widespread," said Amrit Singh, an ACLU lawyer.

How is torture and abuse justified to defend freedom? The answer is it is not - ever.

It will be interesting to see how this story develops. Sooner or later this will need to be brought out into the open for the world to judge so progress can be made in the cause of peace.
