Dogs Authorized at Abu Ghraib; Additional Photos

From the Washington Post story “Use of Dogs to Scare Prisoners Was Authorized”:

“The military intelligence officer in charge of Abu Ghraib later told investigators that the use of unmuzzled dogs in interrogation sessions was recommended by a two-star general and that it was ‘okay.'”

The three photos below were linked off on the sidebar. Remember, the Washinton Post has said it has nearly 1000 photographs in their possession from Abu Ghraib. Even if only 1/5 are of prisoner abuse, we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg. And you can bet they aren’t showing the worst of them, yet.

It’s not clear whether these photos are part of a single chain of events — man intimidated by dog, after a dog bite, getting stitched up — but the guy in the picture seems to be the same and the wound is in the same spot. Also, note how in the final photo, there is a third person in the photo with only their boot being shown stepping on the guy’s chest.
