Torture widespread; involved military intel

NBC News has unearthed a photo which seems to show military intelligence officers involved in the abuse at Abu Ghraib. The notion that CIA and military intel played a prominent role in the torture has been consistently reported since the scandal broke, but this is the first solid piece of evidence to appear.

Jim Lobe also reports that additional evidence has emerged suggesting the abuse is much more widespread than previously acknowledged.
