Uncropped Torture

We've all seen the subject of the photo below before -- it may well become the lasting image of the Iraq war. However, as with most of the other prison abuse photos being displayed by the media, you've mainly been seeing heavily cropped versions up to now.

The version below is uncropped, and suddenly we have a mystery guest in the frame! Apparently it's just another boring day at the office for our new friend on the right, seemingly picking at his fingernails -- while the prisoner with wires hanging from various body parts balances precariously in the background, having been told that he'd be electrocuted if he fell.

What will other uncropped photos from the CDROMs of infamy show, one wonders?
