WEDNESDAY MORNING ABUSE ROUNDUP....60 Minutes II plans to air a home video on Wednesday about possible prisoner abuse at another prison in Iraq, Camp Bucca.

The New York Times has a story suggesting that the same kinds of abuses uncovered at Abu Ghraib have been happening in Afghanistan for quite a while too. American officials say this is the first they've heard of it.

CNN reports that "all 100 senators will have a three-hour window Wednesday to view additional photographs and video showing abuse of Iraqi prisoners." Let's face it: once that happens, how much longer can they be kept from public view? And wouldn't it be better to release them now anyway instead of letting them slowly dribble out and keeping the story alive for weeks or months?
