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.
They are making that choice fully aware that it will cost lives. It is a sedulous Democrat talking-point, repeated most recently by Carl Levin, the Senate Armed Services chairman and a key Obama ally, that the revelations of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib inspired new terrorist recruits, caused American combat casualties, and made the United States more vulnerable to terrorist attack. This has long been Obamas own position. It is a charge he made throughout the 2008 campaign, and it is one he repeated just a month ago in his Strasbourg speech: When we saw what happened in Abu Ghraib, that wasnt good for our security that was a recruitment tool for terrorism. Humiliating people is never a good strategy to battle terrorism.
