The decision to make public the images sought in a legal action by the American Civil Liberties Union comes amid a political firestorm over alleged torture of detainees under President George W. Bush.

Some of the photographs, which will be released before May 28, are said to show American service personnel humiliating prisoners, according to officials.

The images relate to more than 400 separate cases involving alleged prisoner abuse between 2001 and 2005.

You don't remember when he was ready to do that? The ACLU had filed a lawsuit to get the pics and he was going to give them up.

Nah this was a flashback post to show the double standard going on here in relation to what pics he's willing to release and which one's he's willing to sit on. :D
