    Information Operations. More like "we don't want to enable terrorists in killing people"

    Don't work out, work in.

    I am sure the scene, where the CIA operative takes the girl's finger off with a pen knife will make him look evil.

    More evidence of systematic torture during our occupation in Iraq, and War in Afghanistan. We need to expose all of it, put on trial the perpetrators, and analyze why it happened and how we can stop it.

    Because 19 al Qaeda members hijacked 4 planes and crashed them. Perhaps you've heard of September 11th, 2001?

    no - the investigations and their results are being released. We simply aren't releasing the images associated with them.

    Nor should we. Investigate, and prosecute if it is required, but there is absolutely no reason to give the Jihadists more fuel (pictures that can be interpreted different ways) to add to the flames of terrorism.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Precisely. Those who are willing to accept the latter in order to help give emotional appeal to their desire to have us pull out of Afghanistan even faster should, perhaps, re-examine their priorities.

    But, you only whine about it when it's The United States is involved.
