Thanks to the ACLU, the Department of Defense will release over 40 more photos next month of prisoner abuse in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hard as it is, we all need to see them.

"This shows that the abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib was not

ACLU.

"This will underscore calls for accountability for that abuse."
