    I will let Obama's own words answer your question as they are identical to my own. You voted for him right; at least he FINALLY gets it; you’re still wallowing in partisan hypocrisy and denial.

    Mr Obama said issuing the photos would "inflame anti-American opinion and put our troops in greater danger" without shedding any new light on past abuses under the previous administration of George W. Bush.

    He said "that the publication of these photos would not add any additional benefits to our understanding of what was carried out in the past by a small number of individuals".

    Doesn't the fact that there are ADMITTED pictures so terrible they cannot be released ALREADY put our troops in danger. So at this juncture, what's the point whether they are released or not?

    The damage is done and now the U.S. looks like it is hiding something from the world that the U.S. acknowledges is very very bad and the troops will be in danger from this already.

    In fact because the human mind can imagine things more horrible than what is on pictures the worse will be assumed and our troops will already be put in more danger because of the photos not being released.
    Well, when a harmless cartoon sets off Muslims riots in the ME, and people get killed and injured, it's probably prudent of the President.

    I have been in a state of shock and disbelief since I first heard he was finally doing something right.
    Now if the Justice Dept. would go after the Associated Communist Loving Union or (ACLU) for lending aid and comfort to the enemy for trying to put our people in harms way. Everything would be right with the world for almost 2 minutes.

    Apparently the Aussies have released photos. The one on Drudge shows a guy hanging upside down of the edge of a bunkbed naked. My real question is what are the pink sheets all about?

    The image reported to be a prisoner hanging from a bunk on the Telegraph CO.UK looks to be like a fake. Look closely at the hands and feet clearly not tied to anything. You can see nothing that indicates anything other than this guy is nude. He shows no marks of any kind and looks like a pillow or something else under his head to act as a cushion. There is something under his feet so as not to have the metal from the bunk cut his feet. There seems to be some sort of liquid container a matter of inches away so he does not appear to be deprived of water or something else to drink. His hands appear to be in a praying position. I really don't think this is a picture of torture. I'm not saying there might be others that show it but this I don't think does.
    Please with an open mind look closely at it again.

    Its probably just a re-release of a photo already released from this way back in 2004.

    You didn't answer my questions. Please quit avoiding them. I'll break it down for you again so you don't get confused.
    Please explain why you believe it's childish and immature behavior.
    This should be easy enough for you.
    Also, please articulate the increased risk this will put our troops at.
    This one might take some time and some actual evidence. I doubt it will be easy for you at all. I predict you won't actually answer this one.
