Obama reverses course on alleged prison abuse photos
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Obama has ordered government lawyers to object to the planned release of additional detainee photos, the White House said Wednesday.
Abu Ghraib reopened this year under control of the Iraqi Ministry of Justice.
The Defense Department was set to release hundreds of photographs showing alleged abuse of prisoners in detention facilities in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Amrit Singh, an attorney with the ACLU, said the president's decision "makes a mockery" of his promise of transparency and accountability.
