baghdad will burn

if the photos are released, is what he (al-maliki) said

and he may (or may not) be right

i was a proponent of having them released. my reasoning was; we would all be outraged. we would say and MEAN, the united states does NOT torture. we would make those responsible to be held accountable. it looks like none of that will happen.

i will accept the pictures not being released. i will NEVER accept those responsible going free.

Why'd Obama switch on detainee photos? Maliki went ballistic

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama reversed his decision to release detainee abuse photos from Iraq and Afghanistan after Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki warned that Iraq would erupt into violence and that Iraqis would demand that U.S. troops withdraw from Iraq a year earlier than planned, two U.S. military officers, a senior defense official and a State Department official have told McClatchy.

In the days leading up to a May 28 deadline to release the photos in response to an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit, U.S. officials, led by Christopher Hill, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, told Maliki that the administration was preparing to release photos of suspected detainee abuse taken from 2003 to 2006................
