No.1: What do these pics show that we have not already seen and published on the cover of magazines?
No.2: If we already released some why not others?
No.3: Is this a trick by Obama suggesting that this never happens under his watch?
No.4: Why did the liberals INSIST on publishing pictures like these under Bush?
Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.
Moderator's Warning: This isn't the basement. Please take your joking and kidding about how much like must "suck" for someone, while not even bothering to address the topic, to the basement where that kind of thing belongs.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
BO will release those photos. And he will do it with pleasure.
He is playing a political game at the moment. What he does, he does to benefit himself.
Dumb Question, for all those falling over to applaud Obama, and the real reason for my skeptisism of this... report.
Obama and Co. promised to release this stuff. The People in the know went "Hey woah, bad idea boss, really, national security, troop security and really... not a good idea."
For weeks "These pictures will come out" we heard. Now, after the WH takes a look at them, they decide to listen to the Military and others about how bad an idea it is?
Either the pictures show things that even they have to go "woah, yeah... can't really release this". OR... they aren't the useful tools for the political games.
You decide what you want, but the question remains... what was it about seeing them that changed their minds?
I distrust Obama, I think his judgment is suspect and his motives purly political, thus I draw a different conclusion then those that admire him. But that doesn't change the fact of the timing.
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
Block photos?The President would be the last to excuse the actions depicted in these photos. That is why the Department of Defense investigated these cases, and why individuals have been punished through prison sentences, discharges, and a range of other punitive measures. But the President strongly believes that the release of these photos, particularly at this time, would only serve the purpose of inflaming the theaters of war, jeopardizing US forces, and making our job more difficult in places like Iraq and Afghanistan
Why? What BS.
Can it really be worse than Abu Ghraib?
I assume releasing photos showing soldiers abusing detainees would be bad seeing he'll be in a majority Muslim country next month .... :/
It'll come out eventually ...
But alas, it is too late for this new reverse course; the courts have ordered it thanks to the political posturing of the American Liberal Civil Liberties Union and Liberals who continue to farcically believe that this hurts Republicans and Bush, and whose only purpose is to continue the gradual destruction of the USA and conversion of it to the United Community Organization of the States.
After all, anyone with even 1/2 a brain has to ask themselves; what is the purpose to be gained by making these photos public? What possible purpose is there to making the legal justifications for "enhanced interrogation" methods?
It is only unclear to those who continue to lie, distort the facts or wallow in willful denial.
