If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

Abu Ghraib revisited « Previous | |Next »
February 17, 2006

Previously unpublished images showing US troops apparently abusing detainees at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison in 2003 were broadcast on Dateline, the current affairs programme on SBS television.

SBS said the new images were taken in late 2003 at around the same time as the previously publicised photographs, which included a series showing naked detainees arranged in "pyramids".

This image shows a faeces covered detainee arranged in terms of Christian iconography----crucifiction on the cross.

Salon also has a gallery of images on its website. It claims these are unseen anywhere else. There is an introduction that makes a spirited defence of their publication.

The images show that torture and prisoner abuse were simply business as usual for the US military.
