New Documents Detail Abuse of Detainees

Documents released by the American Civil Liberties Union cast more negative light on U.S. treatment of detainees around the world. Among the documents were the results of an Army investigation into photographs of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan, who allegedly posed alongside detainees during mock executions. The photographs were destroyed following the Abu Ghraib prison scandal.
