    Photo Fight: Lieberman and Graham Threaten Senate Shutdown

    Photo Fight: Lieberman and Graham Threaten Senate Shutdown

    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."
    Lieberman:
    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.
    Graham:
    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.
    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.

    Even if the photo release were justice, no justice is worth paying with the lives the American soldiers.

    Pelosi is one sick woman. Why not start a movement in Congress to have her psych evaluated/ I believe she would be put in a nice home to live out her remaining days.

    If the photos are THAT BAD, then maybe the dumbasses shouldn't have OKed such treatment in the first place.

    Funny that you left this part out though:

    This aide also said that Liberman and Graham "are going to attach [the amendment] to every piece of legislation that comes down the pike." And indeed as Lieberman said at the press conference this morning, "we already actually added our original legislation as an amendment to the FDA regulation of tobacco bill that's on the floor right now."
    So basically Lieberman and Graham are acting like spoiled brats and will attach this stupid amendment to everything (even though it is unrelated).

    That's right folks, they are attaching this Photo Bill to a bill for FDA regulation of Tobacco. How is that not deceitful?

    I thought conservatives were against deceit such as this? I guess not.

    You overlook the fact that the folks placed in jeopardy are American troops--regardless of your particular spin on the photos themselves, there is no argument to be made that they "OK'd" anything. Publication needlessly endangers American soldiers--reason enough not to publish.

    This is one time when I am one hundred percent support of politicians in any party acting like spoiled brats. I hope they keep acting like spoiled brats in this matter. What you fecklessly dismiss as a temper tantrum is doing more to preserve American soldiers lives than these despicable and desecratory witch hunts looking for yet more people to hate.

    I am in favor of not putting American soldiers' lives needlessly at risk. I am especially in favor of not putting American soldiers' lives at risk just to gratify some lunatic liberal's voyeuristic fetishes.

    You call it deceit. I call it exigent circumstance.

    Then I guess you should be complaining about the treatment then. Because without that treatment, there would have been no photos to put the soldiers lives in danger. Once again, the people in the U.S. government that did the treatment are the ones putting the lives of U.S. soldiers at risk by doing the treatment.

    It's not deceit if they have announced that they are doing it beforehand. Wanna try again or is this just a histrionic smear of two politicians you just don't agree with?

    It is deceit when a bill is supposed to be about something and spoiled brats try to put in an UNRELATED bill because they can't get their way.

    Not if they have announced it beforehand. I don't see how it's deceit if they tell the truth. Might be a little stubborn, but it isn't deceit.

    I'm starting to like Leiberman more and more.

    It's funny how during the Bush era conservatives called it deceit when Dems put in unrelated stuff to bills even when announcing it, but now that Lieberman and his pet dog are doing it, you agree with it.
