    Dem Leadership Moves to Kill Photo Amendment

    Dem Leadership Moves to Kill Photo Amendment

    THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic leadership is moving to strip the Lieberman-Graham amendment blocking the release of detainee photos from the supplemental appropriations bill now in conference. The Lieberman-Graham amendment, formally named the Detainee Photographic Records Protection Act, was passed unanimously in the Senate and provided President Obama "with the ability to block the publication of the photos that would endanger the safety of our men and women in uniform." The amendment would allow the Secretary of Defense, in conjunction with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to certify that "that the disclosure of photographs like the ones at issue in the ACLU lawsuit would endanger the lives of our citizens or members of the Armed Forces or civilian employees of the United States government deployed abroad."
    At this rate, Dear Leader won't be able to go on foreign trips or take vacations. He'll have to spend the remainder of his term babysitting Queen Nancy and make sure she's reading from the same strategy playbook he is.

    Why is Pelosi so determined to put American military troops in harm's way? Aren't there enough flag-draped coffins in Dover as it is?

    I am sure she does not see it that way, and there is no proof that it would result in more risk to our troops. Still, I would far rather she did not do this.

    Oh, I'm quite sure she does not see it that way. That would be one of the many and multitudinous reasons I'm quite sure she's a total idiot.
