Hussein Obama Administration To Release Bush-Era Detainee Photo's
U.S. to reveal alleged prison abuse photos
Defense Department officials worry that the Bush-era images will prompt a backlash in the Middle East.
The Obama administration agreed late Thursday to release dozens of photographs depicting alleged abuse by U.S. personnel during the Bush administration of prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan.
At least 44 pictures will be released on May 28 -- making public for the first time images of what the military investigated as abuse that took place at facilities other than the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.
Military helped with CIA interrogation tactics, report says Defense officials would not say exactly what is contained in the photos, but said they are concerned that the release could incite a backlash in the Middle East.
The photos are apparently not as shocking as the photographs from the Abu Ghraib investigation that became a lasting symbol of U.S. mistakes in Iraq. But some show military service members intimidating or threatening detainees by pointing weapons at them. Military officers have been court-martialed for threatening detainees at gunpoint.
"This will constitute visual proof that, unlike the Bush administration's claim, the abuse was not confined to Abu Ghraib and was not aberrational," said Amrit Singh, a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union, which obtained the agreement as part of a long-running legal battle for documents related to Bush-era anti-terror policies.
Wild Thing's comment......
Barack HUSSEIN Obama! Finishing the job Osama bin Laden started!
Anytime Obama says he isn’t going to do something, what it really means is he IS going to do it, just under a different name.
Today he says no hearings on this, hours later he tries it in the court of public opinion by selectively releasing what he thinks will bring about the desired outcome. Anything to discredit Bush. It doesn’t matter if it hurts the country and our military.

Can you imagine the nerve of those arrogant military bastards, actually pointing a weapon at those poor detainees in a frakkin' WAR ZONE?? /sarcasm

Obama is a sick anti American muslim bastard. You know the news media is going to run amok with these pictures. Why don't they also show video of suicide bombers carnage, Nick Berg's beheading, mutilated American POWs?
The only state secrets Obama will withhold are his dealings with his cronies and his birth certificate.

TomR, I am so looking forward to the photos of O'Vomit being hung Mussolini style when they are released following his anticipated departure to hell.

How about Matt Maupin's headless corps are they going to show that too. And the two other soldiers they did the same thing too.
These people are pathetic. If we get hit again, those bastards had better stand up and face the music. Becuase it won't be pretty to watch how angry the American people are.

There is no level to low for this character to stoop to in order to try and be Mr. Popularity at the expense of our country. The world just laughs at him, he is a fool.

Tom, I agree, the only way this could even
be done to show they want the truth would
be to show it all.
Show the things Cheney
mentioned and Berg like you mentioned and
also those contractors I think it was that
were hung upside down and that other
contractor that was beheaded.......and
God help us all, they should also tell
about our troops and how horrible they
were tortured and oh whew just thinking
abbout all of this is so terrible.

Mark, yes, like you said about Matt Maupin
and the other soldiers.
I agree Mark, it is so terrible this whole
thing. He has lost his mind with his hate
for Bush he is letting that rule all he does.

Bob A.,I think they are laughing at him
too. How could any of the other leaders
in the world take OBama seriously. Not
that they are any good but my gosh,
Obama is in so many ways a joke and
insane bad joke.
