Indymedia NYC originally reported on this story in late August. Also in late September, additional, "extremely credible" reports of Iraqi prisoner abuse by the 82nd Airborne began to appear in the press.
(Original IMC Report on 8/31): As a New York City judge appeared ready to the deny the ACLU access to additional abuse photographs from the notorious Abu Ghraib prison, information about a website that offers US soldiers free access to porn in exchange for bloody photos of Iraqi corpses has just begun to appear in the European press.

A March 5, 2004, CNN headline read “Naked anti-war demonstrations sweep world.” Nudity as protest harnesses a corporate media that otherwise abstracts and sanitizes war. more... 0 Comments
