The Abu Ghraib Prison Photos
the "liberation" of the Iraqi people
These are just some of the photos that led to an investigation into conditions at the Abu Ghraib prison, now run by the occupation authorities, as revealed in a shocking report broadcast by CBS on 60 Minutes II. ( NOTE Images Copyright CBS News: Reprinted for Fair Use)

Brig. Gen. Janice Karpinski, in charge of the occupiers’ detention facilities throughout Iraq, has been dismissed from her post, and 6 U.S. soldiers face charges
"This is international standards," said Karpinski, in an earlier interview with CBS. "It's the best care available in a prison facility."

Albasrah Received an e-mail with
The horrifying photos of US servicemen raping an Iraqi women, posted from http://www.albasrah.net, are fakes,Scoop unreservedly apologises for the posting of these images. - The Scoop Editor.
They have been floating around on the Internet for a few weeks to my knowledge, and are purpoted to be from a Russian pay-sex site. Note that the website (and scoop.co.nz) mixes these photos with the real photos of abuse. Unsurprisingly albasrah.net is connected to an anti-semitic and pro-Baathist (pro-Saddam) organisation known as Free Arab Voice. The site is registered in the Netherlands.
I hope you will take action on these photos being on your website by making a contraction, or take steps to prove that these are in fact authentic.
