These are just some of the photos that led to an investigation into conditions at the Abu Ghraib prison, once Saddam’s torture palace, and now run by the occupation authorities, as revealed in I. a shocking report broadcast by CBS on 60 Minutes II.

Brig. Gen. Janice Karpinski, in charge of the occupiers’ detention facilities throughout Iraq, has been dismissed from her post, and 6 U.S. soldiers face charges.

"This is international standards," said Karpinski, in an earlier interview with CBS. "It's the best care available in a prison facility."

Anybody can see that….

And even more disturbing screen shots made available from Global Free Press via TheMemoryHole.
