ACLU & Abu Redo

NEW YORK - Saying the United States “does not surrender to blackmail, a judge ruled Thursday that pictures of detainee abuse at Iraq'’s Abu Ghraib prison must be released over government claims that they could damage America'’s image.

The ACLU has sought the release of 87 photographs and four videotapes taken at the prison as part of an October 2003 lawsuit demanding information on the treatment of detainees in U.S. custody and the transfer of prisoners to countries known to use torture. The ACLU contends that prisoner abuse is systemic.

The ACLU again. Aren't these the same people who complain that it is the foreign policy of the Bush administration that is hurting our image in the world? So what exactly is their motivation here? Precisely to damage our image in the world.

For the record, U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein was nominated by Clinton. Shocker.
