Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld warned on May 7 that more "heinous" photos of further abuse in the now notorious Abu Ghraib prison would cause more harm if released to the public.
Bush administration officials are still struggling to contain the damage, but realize many images might surface and become the target of further outrage in this scandal.
"It is a time bomb, but well..." frittered one worried defense official.
On May 8, Ooze's filing under the Freedom of Information Act nabbed us four photos that are sure to rock the world. In one of the images, a smiling smoking female guard gives the camera a thumbs up sign and points to a prisoner's genitals. She is accompanied by an unidentified man in a business suit who is also staring at the genitals and waving his thumb in approval.
This same gentleman is also seen behind a lecturn giving the thumbs up sign behind a pile of seven hooded naked prisoners.
Administration officials are denying that the man in the photo is in fact President George Bush, even though the likeness is extrodinary.
"No way he could have been there. That looks a lot like a Corporal I've heard about in charge of the supply closet. He's not the President of the United States," said one official. "And that other picture is not Jesus either. He's was killed by the Jews 2000 years ago. I know. I saw the movie."
Pentagon officials confirm that if any more world leaders appear in these photos, the prison abuse scandal might not just go away by itself.
