American soldiers, American civilians, and other innocent people are going to die because Pres. Barack Obama wants to release photographs of prisoner abuse. Note: I said, wants to release not has to release, or is being forced to release, or will comply with court orders by releasing. The photos, quite likely thousands of them, will be released because the president wants them released. Any other description of the situation is a dodge.
If President Obama wanted to refrain from releasing these photos in order to protect the military forces he commands or promote the security of Americans his two highest obligations as president he could do so by simply issuing an executive order. The applicable statute expressly allows for it, just as it provides for Congress now in the firm control of the president and his party to withhold the photos from disclosure. Instead, Obama and congressional Democrats are choosing to release the photos.

This will do wonders for the moral of this country. The DIMs are digging their own graves by doing this.
Personally, I think GWB should have had the guts to release all of the photos Chuck and Lynndie took of their after-hours Abu Ghraib S&M club. It would have graphically convinced the public at large that this had nothing whatsoever to do with official interrogation activities.

I wouldn’t mind that, but they are digging MINE at the
This is about Dems trying to write Bush’s legacy. Just as common-culture reflex is that Nixon is a “crook” or Kennedy is “camelot” the goal is to paint Bush as “torturer”
Before he is done I fully expect him to release the names addresses and phone numbers of anyone anywhere in the world who has ever provided any information to agency workers.
The damage to US intel will last multiple generations.
The left profited from the Abu Ghraib pictures. Obamachev thinks the pictures will indemnify from blame for a terrorist attack.
It won ‘t. Darth has seen to that.
The Left DID profit from the carefully-selected Abu Ghraib pictures. Seeing the whole lot, however, with multiple images of Chuck, Lynndie and others (willing and unwilling) getting their freak on every which way but loose would have severely complicated the Left’s argument that this was all part of a premeditated sadistic “professional” program of interrogation.
“Abu Ghraib” would have been an expression to raise giggles. Rather than righteous outrage.
What about the photos of Air Force One’s ill-advised buzzing of NYC? How about releasing those?
You know the ones that the US taxpayers paid $328,000.00 for but now are not allowed to see because the President would be embarassed. Yeah, those.
These are the actions of a traitor, period.
