Have the photos of the electrocutions/ dog attacks been released?
I can understand why 60 minutes wouldn't air them on prime time television, but have they been released on the internet?

Anybody got a link?

2. Those are the same photos shown here.
And the same ones shown on 60 minutes, right?


Apparently 60 minutes has more that they didn't air.

3. 60 Minutes II
I saw 60 Minutes II and they look like the same ones to me.
I don't see the one where the US forces made a prisoner give
or pretend to give another prisoner a blow job, though.

4. I haven't seen them (not that I really want too)
My guess is that they won't be released. I missed the 60 minutes show, did they say where they got the photos?

5. link to CBS story
"It was American soldiers serving as military police at Abu Ghraib who took these pictures. The investigation started when one soldier got them from a friend, and gave them to his commanders. 60 Minutes II has a dozen of these pictures, and there are many more pictures that show Americans, men and women in military uniforms, posing with naked Iraqi prisoners."

6. And people say Irony is dead...
"At the Abu Ghraib prison, where the photographs were taken, American forces have been holding hundreds of Iraqis since the American-led invasion of Iraq. The prison is infamous as a site where Saddam Hussein tortured prisoners while he was in power."
