Suggesting it might appeal to the Supreme Court, the Obama administration asked a federal appeals court Thursday to
block the release of detainee abuse photos, citing redacted statements by two generals that they would incite violence in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. The ACLU said the filing offered "no new arguments."
"It's troubling to us that
not only is the government withholding the photographs, but it's also
withholding its arguments for withholding the photographs," said ACLU attorney Amrit Singh.
