Torture in the Light of Day


After stripping it from this week's war funding bill, the Senate has passed a bill to prevent the release of more torture photos.  The ACLU is still pressing for release.

"Every photo
would become a bullet or IED used by terrorists against our troops," argued co-sponsor GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. He said Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel assured him, "The president will not let these photos see the light of day."


FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
