What Happened To The 2nd Set of Abu Ghraid Photographs?
Remember the set of photos that were so bad the world would end of they were release - according to the Defense Department - but not so bad they shouldn't be released - according to a Federal Judge?

3. The last paragraph in that article say it all....
and this bullshit torture compromise bill will only make things worse not better.....

Finally, it's critical to recognize that this set of images from Abu Ghraib is only one snapshot of systematic tactics the United States has used in four-plus years of the global war on terror. There have been many allegations of abuse, torture and other practices that violate international law, from holding prisoners without charging them at Guantnamo Bay and other secretive U.S. military bases and prison facilities around the world to the practice of "rendition," or the transporting of detainees to foreign countries whose regimes use torture, to ongoing human rights violations inside detention facilities in Iraq. Abu Ghraib in fall 2003 may have been its own particular hell, but the variations of individual abuse perpetrated appear to be exceptional in only one way: They were photographed and filmed.

4. Actually there were multiple sets of photos, each tier worse than the
...ones prior. We got to see the mildest, so let your imagination soar on what has not been seen by the public. You can bet they are far beyond the genre of Robert Mapplethorpe's photographs.
