Video: Never-released Abu Ghraib photos

As an expert witness on behalf of a guard at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, psychologist Philip Zimbardo of Stanford prison experiment fame was privy to many photographs taken by the abusive guards. Today, Wired magazine published a short video by Zimbardo that includes previously unreleased photos. The video is explicit, gruesome and troubling, so "viewer discretion is advised." Wired has an accompanying article with additional resources. Also see Zimbardo's book, The Lucifer Effect (look for my online review on the book's Amazon.com page.)
