Supreme Court overturns order to release photos of detainee abuse

Considering how militant Arabs and Muslims reacted to photos of abuse by US soldiers at Abu Ghraib, and considering that non-Iraqi Arabs and Muslims (and western journalists) in general never seemed to care or even know of crimes at Abu Ghraib before 2004, I think today's decision by the Supreme Court was a good one.

'The Supreme Court on Monday set aside a lower court’s order that called for the release of photographs of prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan being abused by American military personnel. The high court told the lower court to re-examine the issue.'
