Lawyers for President Barack Obama’s administration have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to block the release of photos showing prisoner abuse by US soldiers in Iraq.
In the petition, President Obama writes, “there are nearly 200,000 Americans who are serving in harm’s way, and I have a solemn responsibility for their safety as Commander-in-Chief. It is my judgment … that releasing these photos would inflame anti-American opinion and allow our enemies to paint United States troops with a broad, damning and inaccurate brush, thereby endangering them in theaters of war.”

The release of the photos may very well end the war!
Soldiers may finally grow some balls and say forget this immoral war!
There's no honor or courage in being a mobster's slave!
