Prisoner Abuse Photos Surface

President Obama won’t be happy about this: Photos of the detainee abuse that he is trying to block have surfaced elsewhere. The Telegraph prints one picture of a detainee hung upside down and naked, while another apparently “showed a naked man smeared in excrement standing in a corridor with a guard standing menacingly in front of him.” In another, a “prisoner is handcuffed to the window frame of his cell with underpants pulled over his head.” The images emerged in Australia, where the channel SBS obtained them in 2006 after Abu Ghraib. They did not circulate the world at the time, but they are believed to be among the same photos that President Obama is trying to block.
