Abu Ghraib Uncensored

I am late giving credit to for its thorough coverage of the Abu Ghraib scandal in Iraq. Earlier this year Salon's Mark Benjamin acquired 270 photos and 19 video's from the Army's Criminal Investigation Command showing the extent of abuse at the prison. These photos and videos now appear on along with nine essays by Benjamin and Michael Scherer describing and analyzing what happened and an overview story by Joan Walsh reporting on the Army's own investigation. Additional work on "The Abu Ghraib" files was done by Page Rockwell, Jeanne Carstensen, Mark Follman and Tracy Clark-Flory. The Salon team deserves praise for not letting this story fade away.
Warning: Many of the photos are highly disturbing.
