The whole reason 0bama publicly did a 180 yesterday on the prisoner abuse photos was so that today the headlines would read “Obama’s bid to suppress prisoner abuse pictures fails as images are leaked.”

Notice how the headline leads by saying 0bama tried to prevent their release?
He’s now the “good guy.”

Is this why he appointed Rosa the reporter into the high Pentagon position, so that he had a leak on demand connection over there?

Someone is probably in the process of getting their ass served on an iron platter courtesy of the military.

Failed my ass.

He is behind this surreptitious release.

He’s a f-—ing traitor.

Just another ploy for Barry Hussein to be “outraged.” like the Air Force One NYC fly over.

BO doesn’t care a damn about our soldiers- and those in his leftist administration care even less. If he’s worried about anything, perhaps he is finally beginning to see his political death in his future.
The radicals he has surrounded himself with are some of the worst anti-american slime on the planet. You will be known by the company you keep.

I think this story may be a fake. I have not seen it posted anywhere else and the link is not to the Daily Mail. Anyone else notice this?

it's becoming clear that Obama has little control over those around him.

Looks that way doesn't it or does it? Either way he's in the clear. He tried (cough cough)

But the important thing is, Obama tried...

This is so transparant. Obama has the photos leaked to satisfy his kook fringe base, but can still claim that he put national security first and tried to block the release.
I’m sure Obama will join O.J. Simpson in looking for the leaker on every golf course in the D.C. area.

Great memory and it all plays into this.

I think the photos were leaked by Democrat Party activists in the CIA - the same ones who leaked all the information to assist in the Left’s hate fest against Bush when he was in office.

They know that if they leak for the correct party, there will be no consequences.

On the other hand, those hoping the CIA goes after SanFranNan with leaks to ruin her, forget about it. The CIA policy is to protect the Chicago Thugs and The Party by hiding information and leak document that will destroy Republicans.

Why did no one leak the memos Cheney has requested that shows the urgency of successfully stopping terrorist operations on US soil after 911? Cause that does not help the CIA’s party President and Congress.

This is so obviously orchestrated even a child should see it. These photos have been held secret for years, and now, day after he decides to NOT release them, they appear.

Is there really anyone that thinks that they stayed under lock all this time only to appear now against his wishes?

I don’t understand leaking photos from the Abu Ghraib scandal in 2009. The story’s done & over with. What’s the up side?

B.O. wanted these photos leaked, period. He just didn’t want to be held responsible for this happening. This explains his CYA teleprompter reading the other day.

“I don’t understand leaking photos from the Abu Ghraib scandal in 2009. The story’s done & over with. What’s the up side?”

The only thing I can conclude which seems to fit the available data best is that this administration hates america.

I wonder who ordered the article at the Daily Mail killed?

That’s very interesting and will be grist for a further story in and of itself.

You hit square onto what my assertion suggests - that is that whomever the leaker (or leakers) are, they are predominantly leaking for the Dems. Or they appear to be. If this agency becomes a one-party outfit what then does another party do about that?

Are they in-fact an agency whose majority is that of the liberal Democrat Party?, I don't know? But I do have some understanding of basic statistics and I would like to see a histogram of the "leaks" and how they played out (party to party). Stats (in this case) would seem to bear this out no?

I think San Fran Nan is a special cause in that she (not her Party per se) has called them out and I have to think they are going to leak on her so they watch her die a death of a thousand cuts. So - her "leakage" IMO won't count to my suggested point.

That’s what I was thinking. I can just see him publically being against releasing the photos and in private saying, “Release them.”

It seems crazy to me that they are allowed to have private cameras in places like that, altho I suppose in this day and age it would be virtually impossible to stop it.

It’s gonna be juicy. Obama is going to find out what it is to be on the receiving end now.
His defecate skin won’t be thick enough to take the bashing Bush did though.

This is just the beginning to what is going to be leaked out ..

While I have no sympathy whatsoever for the terrorists, I'm not really sure I understand why all these pictures are out there.

None of this stuff is torture, but it is humiliating. And I wonder if there is a context for the humiliation. For example, were the terrorists being punished for behavior violations, or were they just being humiliated because they are terrorists?

I'm inclined to think that we should not be humiliating anyone for our own amusement or pleasure- but at the very least, if it does occur, is it too much to ask that there are NO CAMERAS present?

Were the pictures worse than the ones of people jumping out of the 110 story buildings on 9/11?

Are the pictures worse than the sounds of people saying goodbye to their loved ones before they burned to death from jet fuel exploding in their offices?

We need to go toe to toe with them on this - show OUR pictures - play our video's.

We didn't start this - they did...

The story appears to have been pulled.

Update at 1:15 p.m. ET: We spoke to Lt. Col. Patrick Ryder, a Pentagon spokesman, who points out that the photos purportedly leaked on Thursday in Australia were not new and in fact "have been online for awhile now." He said they were carried by Wired magazine in February 2008. Here is a link to that article. "To my knowledge, there has been no release of new detainee photos," Ryder says. "These allegations that these are somehow new photos that were leaked is incorrect."

as per USA Today

Perhaps Obama has surrounded himself with little Trotskies and Guevaras who can’t suppress their revolutionary zeal ... or perhaps Obama intentionally leaked them. You can’t take Obama at his word either way.

This is perfect for Obama, it will instigate violence against American interests. What he really wants is a 911 style attack on America, he will say it was caused by the abuses of the previous administration. The 911 style attack will be his “Reichstag fire”, an excuse to institute emergency powers and use those new powers to attack the right rather than go after terrorists. These people have already calculated that whatever terrorists do will be to their advantage to consolidate power. They are doing everything they can to instigate an attack from Muslim terrorists. Why? The answer is that they will use it as an excuse to perhaps suspend congress and amass more powers. Bad times in America. There will be no 2010 elections, it woill be too late by then.
