Haven’t done anything to it and you’re free per ground rules to crop or whatever now that it has been cleared. Although as i said previously ap pool will move one this afternoon that’s better so we may want to use that.. Here’s cutline suggestion if you go with this… Two uighur detainees at guantanamo hold the prison camp’s first self-styled public protest for visiting journalists monday night in this photo cleared for release by the u.s. Department of defense. Pentagon rules prohibit journalists from identifying prisoners or communicating with them. A small group of reporters were quickly ushered away from the demonstration and stopped from releasing their images for more than 12 hours as the white house was consulted.
