Pentagon delays release of images of tortured Afghan, Iraqi prisoners despite court order
The American military has again delayed the publication of images of torture in US prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan. They were supposed to be released on Friday under a court order. The American Civil Liberties Union requested the photographs over 10 years ago, after the scandal surrounding Abu Ghraib broke. Back then, the media released pictures showing the abuse and humiliation of detainees at the facility in Baghdad. The Pentagon agreed to release just 10 percent of the requested two thousand images, but that hasn't happened.
