New Photos of Iraqi Prisoner Abuse

During his testimony today, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld warned that more photographs of U.S. soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners would be released shortly--and that they were worse than those we've seen to date --depicting "sadistic, cruel and inhumane" acts.

NBC describes the as-yet unreleased photos:

U.S. military officials told NBC News that the unreleased images showed U.S. soldiers severely beating an Iraqi prisoner nearly to death, having sex with a female Iraqi prisoner and “acting inappropriately with a dead body.” The officials said there was also a videotape, apparently shot by U.S. personnel, showing Iraqi guards raping young boys.
