More Abu Ghraib photos

I have a couple of questions.  The story of the day seems to be that more photos were “released” about what happened at the prison Abu Ghraib.  They are horrible, to be sure, but they have also spurred calls for another investigation.  So my questions are:

    1. Where did Dateline get these new photos?  Are they more photos that were included in the original investigation but not released at the time because the government thought they were a bit brutal for public consumption?  If that’s the case then wouldn’t the original investigation cover what the chattering class is clamoring for?
    2. In the original investigation, where deaths or other evidences of what’s in the current hash of photos evidences?  What are the offenses that the people serving prison terms all about?
