Okay, so we can release photos of prisoners being interrogated.

But not photos from inside presidential plane flown over Manhattan?

Poison Photo-Drop .. decision to release photographs .. will imperil nation .. its defenders.

That is why Obama and Pelosi favor this evil act. If they can trade a few hundred (or even thousand) more dead soldiers for another chance to blame Bush, they consider it a great deal. They don't like our military anyways, not when soldiers are just potential terrorists, and they love energizing the CodePink/MoveOn Hate-America-First wing of their party.

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 Obama administration DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THE USA or the safety of its citizens as long as they can score political points with other liberals and socialists.

This is being done for only one reason - to cut the legs from the US Military and discredit the prestige of American Military power and integrity.

So many good 0bama talking points will extend from that:

- the US is a more civilized country
- we aren’t war mongers any more
- this is an example of what the world gets when a liberal Democrat is not in command of the US forces
- etc.

Important paragraphs [my highlights]:

Some will say that the president won’t do that because he does not want to anger the anti-war Left, a significant part of his base. In truth, the president is the anti-war Left. He won’t issue an executive order of this kind because he wants the photos revealed. It is important to understand that disclosure here is not an inevitable outcome. It is a choice. It doesn’t have to happen unless Obama wants it to happen.

The same can be said of the Democratic Congress. The Second Circuit ruling that Holder chose not to appeal did not say the Constitution mandated public dissemination of photos that will imperil Americans. It said FOIA required it. FOIA is just a statute. Congress writes the statutes and it can amend the statutes. Democrats control both houses, as well as the White House. If they wanted to bar disclosure of the photos, they could do that tomorrow. And with the overwhelming support they’d get from Republicans, they could do it with veto-proof margins. But legislative override would likely be irrelevant: Obama wouldn’t dare veto a non-disclosure bill — he wants disclosure, but only if he can snooker people into believing it wasn’t his choice.
