WASHINGTON – The Defense Department will release around 2,000 photos depicting abuse of prisoners by U.S. personnel in Iraq, Afghanistan and at Guantanamo Bay the American Civil Liberties Union said late Thursday.
One U.S. official told NBC News that the photos are "not as bad as those from Abu Ghraib," the prison where U.S. military guards stripped prisoners naked and threatened them with guard dogs, but "they're not good."
The photos will be made available by May 28, the ACLU said, citing a letter dated from the Justice Department to a federal judge in New York. The photos' release is in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the ACLU in 2004 and will include images from prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan at locations other than Abu Ghraib, the ACLU said.
