as ever i am blighted by being able to see both perspectives. oh me!
i can imagine the republicans would wish to see the foto release, for the upsurge in violence they cynically believe would arise. this might be an accurate prediction. but really, since when was there a need for a pictorial montage before 'haters of america' made and set off more IEDs?
the result of the current decision, is an Obama ('Mr Change') seemingly doing his best to sweep under the rug, the misdeeds of a previous administration. there is no accountability in doing this.
also, when people bitch and complain about a lack of transparency in the run up to and commission of the current 'unrest' and investigation post 'war, Obama can be held up as an example of how information 'should' be surpressed for the sake of the greater good.
in 'our enemies' rage is provoked as they see no justice forthcoming and are left to presume the worst; and in us, we are left with the profound sense of being left in the dark, as we are told to trust the 'ruling elite'.
and then you have the problem of a politicised judiciary.... which i assure you from the UK experience is awash with compromise, corruption and conflict of interest.
sometimes, it is painful to admit to wrong doings. but you have to confess before you atone. no one would consider the Obama to be at fault for that done many years ago; if anyone claims to have committed violence acts because of the release of such images, they would've done so anyway.
release the photos and assure the planet that those who are responsible will be tried in a court of interntional law with complete transparency.
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
