First Soldier To Face Court Martial In Iraq Prison Abuse Case

Today's announcement of the first court-martial came as another example of cruelty from the Abu Ghraib prison was made public.

The latest photo is said to be just one of several more that will be released by the Pentagon, possibly later this month.

ABC news is reporting that the detainee in this photo was attacked and injured by one of the dogs moments after the picture was taken.

Meanwhile, 24 year old specialist Jeremy Sivits will stand trial for conspiracy, dereliction of duty and maltreatment of detainees. Officals promise the trial of the military policeman will be open to the public.

"It is not our intention to hide anything. We have a tremendous amount of pride in the military and in teh american legal system and we would hope that that would be deomonstrated in the weeks to come," says Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt.

Specialist Charles Graner, seen in many of the prison photos, is also facing charges stemming from these incidents. But his attorney maintains Graner was acting under orders when he was photographed.
