    Another reason this Civil Libertarian will NOT be fooled into voting for this Obama again. This argumentation is ridiculous. Memos, fine. But pictures of what the memos entail? No! Support the troops! Ugh, I'm so sick of this crap and I thought I voted for something better.

    When you're wrong, you make a U-turn. It's not strength to bull-headedly take your country to hell because you CANT 'fess up.

    The American People had enough about the past. It is time to be wise and concentrate on the current situation and to beuild a great future generations.

    These photos must be really horible. If. The commanders on the ground are saying that the photos would put the lives of innocent soldiers in danger, than I agree with Obama that they should not be released. However, the names of the guilty soldiers should be released and the American people should be informed of the punishments that the abusive soldiers will receive. The abusers should not be able to get away with committing autrocities just because they wear the uniform.
