The pro-terrorist lefties won’t get their voyeuristic kicks just yet.
The Senate on Wednesday night quietly passed a ban on the release of any photos that allegedly depict detainee abuse.
The measure, which was stripped at the last minute from the war supplemental spending bill in the face of anti-war Democratic opposition in the House, was approved as a stand-alone bill by voice vote.
Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., co-sponsors of the bill, had threatened to filibuster the war spending bill if they did not ultimately get a vote on their photo measure. With the supplemental heading back to the Senate after the House narrowly approved it Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., relented to Graham and Lieberman.
……The Second Circuit Court of Appeals recently stayed its own ruling that the photos be released to the American Civil Liberties Union, which had filed a Freedom of Information Act request. The stay is pending a Supreme Court decision to hear the case.
……The Senate bill now heads to the House, where it once again faces the likelihood of Democratic opposition.
No one, especially the leftwing fucktards, seems to give a shit about the video-taped atrocities broadcast by the Taliban and al Qaeda on the internet. They’re not fazed about all the reports of beheadings, “honor killings”, homicide bombings or torture and murder of contractors, whose bodies were found hanging on a bridge. Not one fucking peep.
But by gawd, let us do what is necessary to save Americans from further attacks, and they wet their pants.
The trouble is, this isn’t being presented in the proper context. In a perfect world, everyone would be on board with showing Islamic terrorists what we can do to them if/when they are caught, and not be the least bit shy about it. Instead, photos and the documents proving the effectiveness of interrogations, are being politicized to appease morons who think that we ‘create’ more terrorists or gawd forbid, make them ‘angry’.
I’d just rather make them dead.
