About Those Alleged Photos from Iraqi Prisons....

A couple of weeks ago, President Obama decided to block the release of prisoner abuse photos from Iraq. The decision proved controversial, with some people accusing the President of reneging on campaign promises to release any such images of abuse. Obama, on the other hand, now says that releasing them would only serve to inflame hatred of the United States and therefor further endanger American troops. The specific content of the pictures remained unknown.

Now a British newspaper is reporting that those photos depict scenes of rape and other sexual abuses.

Even if that's true, how do we know those photos are from the inside of an Iraqi prison and NOT from the inside of, say, a Catholic school?
