SBS DATELINE Abu Ghraib Report - 15 February 2006

On Wednesday 15 February 2006, Australian public broadcaster SBS current affairs program DATELINE telecast a segment featuring 60 new photos of the torture inflicted on prisoners in the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. These photos were secured by court order - the ACLU figures prominently in the report - but these photos haven't yet been shown in the media anywhere in the United States. Because of the broadcast on SBS, you now have access to both Web-downloadable versions and BitTorrent file-sharing network versions of the broadcast on this site. THESE PHOTOS ARE VERY DISTURBING. Please do not view this video if you are easily disturbed by graphic imagery of torture and death.

Here is a link to a PDF file of a New York Times article about the broadcast.
Here is a link to a post on Boing Boing about the broadcast. (Thanks Xeni!)

These files are all hosted on a server located in the United States to speed access for US viewers.

Note: If you do know how to use BitTorrent, please download the appropriate BitTorrent file and use that. There are many seeds (100+) sharing the BitTorrent version of this movie, and it has very fast download speeds.

If you find you can't play the video on your computer, download the VideoLAN program from here. This program will play the files. VideoLAN works on PCs, Macs, and LINUX boxes.
