 6,000 pages of detainee abuse documents

The American Civil Liberties Union announced yesterday that they have received from the federal government nearly 6,000 pages of documents related to the abuse of prisoners at overseas detention facilities, including almost all of the annexes to the Taguba report concerning abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

The release of the documents follows a federal court order that directed the Defense Department and other government agencies to comply with the ACLU’s year-old request under the Freedom of Information Act.

A log of the records received is online at and copies of the documents will be posted over the course of the next several days.
