Judge rules Iraq prison abuse photos must be released

On Thursday, a federal judge ordered the release of dozens more pictures of abuse from the infamous Baghdad prison.

Gen. Richard B. Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had
argued in court papers that releasing the photographs would aid
al-Qaida recruitment, weaken the Afghan and Iraqi governments and
incite riots against American troops.

This is like a rapist saying he might be embarrassed by public
disclosure of his actions. And I believe this set of photos does depict
sexual abuse, or something quite noxious indeed, else why has the
Pentagon gone to such extraordinary lengths to block their release?

Torture photos from prisons, preachers calling for assassination of
heads of state, talk show hosts wanting to abort Black babies.
What a demented society we live in, made all the worse by the
almost complete silence from DC and Congress by either party on any
of this.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing.”
