Pictures of mock executions destroyed, report says. Via AP:
Pictures of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan posing with hooded and bound detainees during mock executions were destroyed after the Abu Ghraib prison scandal in Iraq to avoid another public outrage, Army documents released Friday by the American Civil Liberties Union show.
The results of an Army probe of the photographs were among hundreds of pages of documents released after the ACLU obtained a federal court order in Manhattan to let it see documents about U.S. treatment of detainees around the world.
Of course, this is small potatoes compared to the White House/Rumsfeld decision to put the General who ordered the abuse in charge of so-called investigation into it….
