If the satellite images aren't actually *broadcast* in real time, then how could they be comprising troop movements to the public? All it would take
is a delay in broadcasting to avoid giving out such vital information...Yet, if the images aren't *edited* before broadcast, the public would still
be able to get the truths of the war itself (Including Hussien's "WMD's that he doesn't have" being used against our troops).
If he claims not to have them, then he couldn't actually *use* them against our troops without risking such lies to become revealed world-wide...And
to the UN!
In such a case, Hussien would have to "hold back", essentially giving our troops a bigger advantadge than they already have; The other side of the
coin is that if he *doesn't* use any "WMD's that he doesn't have", then we'd know more about Bush's motives for the war, wouldn't we?
Also, if the owners of the satellite were to give the US ally troops any real-time info about Iraqi troop movements in the process, they could use
that info to compare with their own intelligence reports & come up with better strategies...And any ground-based reporters (independant or not) would
be less likely to "walk into a mine field"...
We still get the truth, the military doesn't have to worry about compromising info getting out in any way that would harm their strategies. Simply
delaying broadcast to the public, without editing, sounds like a feasable compromise of "truthful knowledge vs. neccesary secrecy" to me...
