Photo Fight: Lieberman and Graham Threaten Senate Shutdown
Lieberman:The Democratic aide I spoke with assured me that Lieberman and Graham "are not going to go quietly into the night" on this because failure to do so would "clearly put the troops in danger." This source added that if Pelosi has cut a deal with liberal members of her caucus, she is "defying the White House, and defying the commanders on the ground."
Graham:If this amendment is dropped, Senator Graham and I will not go quietly into the night. And we will not do so because the safety of our troops and our nation of the American people is on the line. We will use all of the legislative tools at our disposal to see to it that this amendment prohibiting the release of these photographs of detainees will be adopted.
Nancy Pelosi needs to get her head out of her ass. Would be a good thing if folks let their Representative know that Lieberman and Graham are correct and that Pelosi needs to have her ears pinned back.The only body that is off-script, in my opinion, is the House. If they drop this in conference, it will be one of the most outrageous and irresponsible acts in the history of the Congress.
Even if the photo release were justice, no justice is worth paying with the lives the American soldiers.
