U.S. plans appeal on abuse photos — link .
The Obama Administration has decided to go to the Supreme Court – if Congress does not act first – to stop public disclosure of an array of U.S. Army photos that apparently show severe abuse of terrorist detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Justice Department on Thursday asked the Second Circuit Court to put a ruling ordering release on hold because the Solicitor General has decided to appeal to the Supreme Court “absent intervening legislation.” …
the Senate took up legislation to block the release – the Detainee Photographic Records Protection Act – by changing the language of the Freedom of Information Act.
Why Obama and DoD want these photo’s blocked – Detainee abuse photos ‘show rape’
