The photos America doesn't want seen

By Matthew Moore - February 15, 2006 - Sydney Morning Herald

MORE photographs have been leaked of Iraqi citizens tortured by US
soldiers at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison on the outskirts of Baghdad.

Tonight the SBS Dateline program plans to broadcast about 60 previously
unpublished photographs that the US Government has been fighting to
keep secret in a court case with the American Civil Liberties Union.

Although a US judge last year granted the union access to the
photographs following a freedom-of-information request, the US
Administration has appealed against the decision on the grounds their
release would fuel anti-American sentiment.

Some of the photos are similar to those published in 2004, others are
different. They include photographs of six corpses, although the
circumstances of their deaths are not clear. There are also pictures of
what appear to be burns and wounds from shotgun pellets.

The executive producer of Dateline, Mike Carey, said he was showing the
pictures leaked to his program because it was important people
understood what had happened at Abu Ghraib.

Seven US guards were jailed following publication of the first batch of Abu
Ghraib photographs in April 2004.

Mr Carey said he could not explain why the photographs had not yet been
published, as he thought it was likely that some journalists had them.

"It think it's strange, maybe they think its more of the same."

AMERICA'S SHAME

Torture in the Name of Freedom

The new pictures from Abu Ghraib provide the most recent evidence: America's moral bank account is empty -- and it has lost the image wars. The entire Muslim world�no longer trusts the world's most powerful nation.

They are photos that make your blood run cold. They take your breath away. They turn your stomach. They are photos that make you wonder what kinds of human beings would do these things to other human beings. They trigger anger, disgust and shame.
