Taguba: I Never Saw the Photos

Retired Army General Antonio Taguba says he was quoted out of context claiming the prisoner-abuse photos President Obama is fighting to keep secret depict rape. Taguba was referring to photos he’d seen while investigating the Abu Ghraib scandal, not the 44 photos that are the subject of an ACLU investigation, which he has never seen. "These pictures show torture, abuse, rape and every indecency," Taguba said to the The Telegraph, which attributed the quote to the new photos. White House officials blasted the account. Taguba agrees with Obama that the 44 photos should not be released because they pose a danger to U.S. troops.
