    New Iraq photos include more disturbing images of torture

    WASHINGTON -- Members of Congress viewed fresh photos and videos of Iraqi prisoner abuse on Wednesday, and said they included disturbing images of torture and humiliation.

    "The whole thing is disgusting and it's hard to believe that this actually is taking place in a military facility," said Senator Dianne Feinstein (D - Calif.) "I expected that these pictures would be very hard on the stomach lining and it was significantly worse than anything that I had anticipated," said Senator Ron Wyden (D - Ore.) "Take the worst case and multiply it several times over."

    Several senators, speaking on condition of anonymity, said photos of sexual intercourse were among the images that Pentagon officials screened for legislators in a top-secret room in the Capitol. At least some of the photos gave the appearance of consensual sex involving U.S. military personnel, they added.

    Others showed military dogs snarling at cowering prisoners, as well as shots of Iraqi women commanded to expose their breasts, they said.

    The private screening marked the latest turn in a scandal that has rocked the Bush administration and apparently led to the beheading of an American in Iraq by Islamic militants who said they were avenging the humiliation and torture of Iraqi prisoners.

    "I don't know how the hell these people got into our army," said Ben Nighthorse Campbell (R-Colo.) after viewing the images.

    "There were several pictures of Iraqi women who were disrobed or putting their shirts up," he said. "They were not smiling in the pictures, that's for sure. But it didn't look like they had been beaten or hurt."

    He also said there were several pictures with dogs. "Iraqis were against the wall and you could see that the dogs were pretty much terrorizing them because the dogs were snarling and crouching like they were about to attack," he added.

    NOTE: These were among the 1,800 new pictures and video stills depicting abuse at the Abu Ghraib jail shown to members of the US Congress, the U.S. is bocking the release of these materiaal to the public.

    The Holy Quran Quotes

    “Prayer (Salat) is the most important practice in Islam. Allah has ordered the Muslims to be mindful of it. The Holy Qur'an says:"Guard strictly your prayers, especially the Middle Prayer, and stand before Allah with all devotion.”

    (Al-Baqarah, 2:238)
