    Actually, if I understand the nature of the report correctly, we're not talking strictly about "what happens in a war zone". And as for Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, I hold myself and America to a very much higher standard than that. I'm surprised you didn't toss in North Korea as well, just to add a little more flavour.

    No. Don't release it. I want results and I have no interest in how they are achieved. The last thing anyone needs is a bunch of whiners complaining. Good, bad, or indifferent, there are some things I don't need to know. I'm perfectly satisfied to leave the "how" to the experts.

    I say release the truth and deal with the consequences later.

    And if releasing the truth gets more Americans killed, tough.

    When America's official government policy becomes suppressing the truth due to fear...then let America die as a country.

    If you commit horrible acts, you should pay the consequences of those acts.

    Amen.

    If there is a question of veracity involved, the publication might be a problem and should be held back for a few months. Maybe marking and explaining the problems and open questions would be enough. But there can be no question that we need to know exactly what happened.

    Heya 515. I expect that the MS media will want to drive this by the GOP with questions concerning Feinstein and get that slinging out there, Right away.

    Although I wouldn't expect Roger's with House Intel to be to vocal. Not going out as House Chair.

    Good morning/afternoon Ocean,

    I'm generally in agreement with you on most matters but I have to question your faith in/belief that government has unquestioned "expertise". Only through active public oversight and accountability do we ensure that our collective reputations aren't sullied by the corruptions of a few with power.

    Anything to get the GOP off balance will be used. What is the point of the release? Feinstein is a pathetic creature, so her motives are hard to figure. It amazes me for what qualifies for transparency in this administration, and what does not.
