    U.S. military to release prisoner photos

    by Jim Miklaszewski, NBC News Chief Pentagon Correspondent

    [IMG]

    U.S. officials tell NBC News the Pentagon and military are preparing to release as many as 2,000 photos, including several dozen which show alleged prisoner abuse at Guantanamo Bay and other military detention facilities in Iraq and Afghanistan. The photos, which have not been seen publicly, would be the first visual evidence of possible prisoner abuse at Guantanamo Bay.

    The photos are being released in response to a federal lawsuit filed by the ACLU.

    One U.S. official said the photos are "not as bad as those from Abu Ghraib," the prison where U.S. military guards stripped prisoners naked and threatened them with guard dogs, but "they're not good."

    According to the official, at least one photo shows a prisoner shoved up against a wall as military guards of interrogators appear to threaten to sexually assault the prisoner with a broomstick.

    A federal court in New York had ordered the military to release dozens of photos of detainees sought by the ACLU, but military officials are considering releasing as many as 2,000 photos -- most benign -- to remove any doubt or suspicions about the content of any remaining photos.

    As of now the photos are expected to be released within a month.

    People change the headlines all the time. He's no different than some others in here and other forums who post headlines to get more people to read the headline.

    I'm sure half the threads on the front page of this forum alone have alternate titles.

    As long as it's close, it doesn't bug me as much.

    Only time I do it is when the original title tends to be too long. Like you though I have no problem with people doing it

    I would agree with that,but not in this particular case.
    The agenda here is crystal clear.We all know who and what we are.
    100% effort to disparage.
    Zero percent effort in finding the truth.

    Again, that can be applied to a number of threads in this forum.

    Not everyone posts the headline as its posted on the original site. Some post the meaning of the article, because the headline isn't as clear.

    Just another case of people finding an issue with the poster, not the post.

    Hey Bunker Boy...how can you find out the truth before we have even seen the frickin photos.

    We don't know for sure what they show...it may be a tempest in a teapot for all we know.

    I'm not disparaging anyone...those people took the pics not me...they're doing it to themselves.

    I just posted the article that says they're going to release them...don't like that?

    Good.

    Are they not releasing photos of prisoner abuse?

    Alleged or otherwise.

    Simple question Yes or No.

    So why did you change the title of the thread...If I WERE LIKE you I guess I would change the title of any article I find to make it more appealing for myself.

    You plagiarized the article, in other change what the original author had wrote to please yourself. Personally I find that disgusting, thats all :)

    To be honest, I don't care if they took pictures of them wearing Spam hats and earrings and posted them on youtube for all the other terrorists to see. Taking pictures of a terrorist wearing pink panties on their head is not abuse. It's ridiculing, it's embarrassing, it's also funny as heck considering what these pukes were up to, but it's not abuse. So, I don't have a problem with it.
