When it became clear that many of the 1,600 Abu Ghraib photos shown a Senate Armed Forces Committee last year would not be made public, the Federation of American Scientists’ Steven Aftergood filed an FOIA request. He got bounced by the Defense Department to the U.S. Central Command, back to Defense, then to the Army’s Freedom of Information Department, and on to the Army’s Crime Records Center, which has now asked him to “provide the date, location, and names of persons involved in the abuse and we will attempt to conduct a search.” (3/31/05)
