Supreme Court Gives White House Another Chance to Block Torture PicsS

Barack Obama said he wanted torture photos released, but then he changed his mind. The ACLU won its suit to have them released, but now the Supreme Court is sending that victory back to the Second Circuit to be reconsidered.

The ACLU has been trying to get these photographs of US prisoner abuse released for years. The Second Circuit Court of Appeals ordered that the photos be released to the public last year, but then Congress enacted a bill allowing the Secretary of Defense to exempt the photos from FOIA requests, because Congress and the DoD are both terrible. So, in light of that new legislation, the Supreme Court has ordered the appeals court to reconsider their ruling. Which means probably no torture photos.
