Senate Votes to Block Release of Photos for 5 Years


buzz.yahoo.com

"The Senate included an amendment to prevent the public release of photographs that reportedly document the mistreatment of post-Sept. 11 detainees in U.S. custody.

"The language is aimed at preventing a court from ordering their release in response to a freedom of information lawsuit.

...

"The measure was sponsored by Sen. Joe Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut, and Sen. Lindsay Graham, a South Carolina Republican, who said releasing the inflammatory photos would stoke resentment against the U.S. It blocks the photos' release for five years and gives the Secretary of Defe

Well, here it is!

No photos for us, not even if they get taken to court under the Freedom of Information Act!

It's nice that they had a Republican do it, so conservatives can't blame the liberals and the liberals can blame the conservatives!

If it was a liberal who sponsored this measure, you know the right wingers would be all over it, seems like the administration and congress knew that too!

Its a good thing that blocked them for five years hopefully we will be out of the middle east by then. The reason they are blocking them for now from public release is to protect the lives of Soldiers who are currently in a combat zone.

Yeah hopefully we will be at full blown war at that point and it won't matter anyway....maybe that's what they are counting on.

Also gives them plenty of time to photoshop...

It's amazing these pictures weren't leaked yet...

Oh wait...i forgot that they only leak info they want everyone to see...

But in all honesty....in 5 years this country isn't going to resemble anything close to how things are today.

In 5 years this country is going to be so beyond broke that we may not even be able to fund anymore wars.

That could actually be one positive for the economy tanking. If no one will fund our wars...then we can't make war.

How did the USSR fall apart? hmm.....
