    TD, it's not the UCOS, it's the USSA.

    United Socialst States of America.

    They have tradition to follow after all.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Frankly, I really don't care what his reasoning is. He arrived at the right conclusion and took the right action. The Anti-Republicans in Congress may not like it, but their witch hunts are an abomination and must be stopped, period.

    I find it fascinating that ANYONE thinks that by parroting the rhetoric of the enemies trying to kill our troops makes them safe or could be considered anything less than anti-American.

    But alas, it wasn't JUST Americans whose lives were put at risk by all this offensive partisan posturing for purely political purposes; it was also the other 34 coalition partners that went in with us.

    I am still fascinated when Liberals who ranted and railed about the failure of our efforts in Iraq even in the face of successes, whine when they are correctly labeled as being anti-American; now whine and rant when those from the OTHER political perspective correctly criticize the lies and distortions that represent the current administration.

    Do Liberals actually think that it is ONLY their right to criticize Republicans? How trite and hypocritical.

    My comment to those who are spending so much time whining about the efforts of the OTHER side exposing the OBVIOUS idiocy that now infests all facets of our Government except the Judicial branch so far need to just SUCK it UP and get used to it; it looks patently pathetic to have set the bar so low, then complain about the new low standard they set during Bush’s Presidency don't you think?

    After all, we pretty much expect perfection now from our Government after railing about how imperfect it was under Bush; anything less is unexplainable now that we have the smartest Liberals on earth guiding our economy and foreign policy right?

    Do you think he has actually done this; stopped the eventual release of these photos? Right now, I believe that this is the NEW revised REALITY advice he is getting and have only heard that they are re-assessing what to do.

    The ONLY recourse here is of course to refuse the order and force it all the way to the Supreme Court of course. This will provide perhaps one more year of respite.

    But the REAL story is the asinine legal logic of the Jurist who made the decision to override the lower court and side with the ALCLU.

    Other then serving as the Far Lefts porn the release of such things while at war only aids the enemy.
    Moderator's Warning:
    Obama to block detainee abuse photosOP lacks a source that meets breaking news criteria.
    Here's one:
    President Obama moves to block release of detainee abuse photos

    President Obama reversed course Wednesday and decided against voluntarily releasing photos of suspected terrorists who were abused while in military custody.

    The American Civil Liberties Union requested the photos in 2003 under the Freedom of Information Act. A federal court will now decide whether they will be released.

    A federal judge has ruled the pictures must be released by the end of May. With Obama's intervention, the release will be delayed - and could be scrapped if the judge agrees with Obama's new position.

    The news reports are that he is moving to block the release.

    Will he get trumped by the judge? That I do not know.

    Will he choose not to make a huge fight of it? That I do not know.

    What I do know is that, according to news reports, he has come down on the side of not releasing the photos. That's the right side and the right conclusion, and regardless of what his position was yesterday, and regardless of what outcomes may come tomorrow, today he doing the right thing.

    If the photos come out, then double and triple damnation on any who championed their releas. For now, he's not doing that. That's a good thing.

    AFAIK the photos are simply more of those taken by the dips already busted for their actions in Abu Ghaib that where not released before.

    Just release the photos imo.
    I doubt they are worse than what has already been released.

    It can't be kept hidden forever

    I dont think it was a compliment...rather he was pointing out the double standard and noting Obama=Bush. Merely a supposition.

    The photos will get out regardless of what they want.
    Probably not a good thing for the sheep to smell blood.

    It's about forcing Americans to come face to face with what their government does in their name. It's about seeing just how ugly it really is so that people will demand we stop it. I don't agree with Obama blocking the photos. We need to take the ill tasting medicine.

    It is only unclear to those who continue to lie, distort the facts or wallow in willful denial.
