From Reuters: "President Barack Obama said on Wednesday he would fight the release of dozens of photographs showing the abuse of terrorism suspects, over concern the images could ignite a backlash against U.S. troops."
(Probably a good idea.)
But honestly, I would LOVE to see these pictures. I can see it now. Terrorist #24 pressing himself into a corner from fear of the caterpillar. Terrorist #16 has dark circles under his eyes from sleep deprivation. But what's this? Oh, it's the Daniel Pearl beheading video! How about we show THAT one to the public right along side photos of detainee abuse, and then continue to call what we do to terrorists "abuse." Wait, we can't. Because it's NOTHING compared to what those animals do to our guys (and Pearl was just a journalist!).
Why, why, WHY are people so concerned with how TERRORISTS are treated? Did they forget that these men are willing to kill themselves in the name of some God? That these men's torture tactics include putting a blowtorch to the skin or hanging one upside down and electrocuting him?
9-11 happened because we weren't on the offensive. Now we and our cities have been kept safe. A major terrorist attack in LA was thwarted thanks to waterboarding.
The problem with liberals is that they think a psycho terrorist can be cured with love and affection, and that if we just torture them with hugs, they'll realize the error of their ways.
On another note, I was having dinner with some of my 09-10 suitemates and politics came up....most of them love Obama. Guess I have some serious work to do starting in August!
