Important question about new Abu Ghraib photos
Is there a possibility that the government could release redacted photos? I just keep thinking back to the 28 pages redacted in the 9/11 report, maybe we will just get a bunch of blacked out images. If the judge left it up to the govt.'s discretion to edit the photos for sexual content whats to stop them from removing everything?

1. The judge would get to see both the editted and the uneditted photos.

9. sure it does
If they try what you are suggesting the judge will hold them in contempt.

3. there's supposedly a gang rape of a preteen boy in there
So it's actually unclear whether it's legal to distribute it.

4. I have an important question about them, too!
WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY?!

But, to answer your question, nothing these guys do would surprise me. If they managed to black them out, well, they've been keeping them out of the light for at least two years as it is already, so why not redact stuff for "national security" purposes as well?

It's all part of the stonewalling by the Radical Right. They'd lie to their own God to keep in power. Oh, wait...

5. I think the delay on getting these pictures and video
out was due to the redacting going on, to 'protect the innocent.' :eyes:
That's what I recall reading...

6. From what I remember, the judge in the case was allowing the
government to redact the photos to exclude certain information, which I forget the exact nature was. So, after X number of weeks, they were supposed to be ready to be released.

7. Months ago, the judge in question stated that the

additional photos would be redacted, at least as far as faces and any identifying marks are concerned. If they are ever released, they will not include the very worst - again according to the judge - and I seem to recall that the release was predicated on some other circumstances and may not happen at all. In other words, it probably won't happen at all.

8. I don't that's in the judges order!
I'm sure they'd love to, but I don't think the judge would allow that. Fortunately, there's a judge involved this time. Last time the WH made their own decisions!
