President Obama has ordered government lawyers to object to the planned release of additional detainee photos, according to an administration official.
"Last week, the president met with his legal team and told them that he did not feel comfortable with the release of the [Defense Department] photos because he believes their release would endanger our troops, and because he believes that the national security implications of such a release have not been fully presented to the court," the official said.

Just another in a long long line of political cover ups. Few people find out about it, try and make a fuss, but nothing gets done, nothing gets said. Its the way it always has been and its the way it always will be.
These people have no one to answer to and until the people who elected these officials MAKE them answer, its best not to think about it. Its too infuriating.
I have lots of friends who say they would rather live in ignorance to the world. Its like I have said a million times, people don't care whats going on in the world around them, how can they? American Idol is on in an hour.

I have very mixed reactions. On one level accountability and on the other a desire to not stir the hornest's nest.
Adding to my angst is that many of us rely on the FOIA to unmask the misdeeds of government and conspiracies. (FEMA, 911, Aliens etc.)
I am konfused.

If you voted for Obama I suggest you change your attitude and remember this is change you can believe in.
