    Taguba Denies Telegraph 'Rape Photos' Story, White House Urges Coverage






    White House reporters received an unusual email on Saturday, with a subject line stating, "Important Please Read: From White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs."

    In the email body, Gibbs wrote:

    A number of you have asked about or reported on a recent article in the Telegraph that inaccurately described photos which are the subject of an ongoing lawsuit. Both the Department of Defense and the White House have said the article was wrong, and now the individual who was purported to be the source of the article has said it's inaccurate. Given that this false report has been repeated around the world, and given the impact these negative reports have on our troops, I felt it was important for you to see this correction.

    Gibbs included the full text of a story by Salon.com's Mark Benjamin, which features retired Army Maj. Gen. Antonio Taguba denying reports that he has seen the photos of prisoner abuse that the Obama administration is trying to keep secret.

    The blame lies with Cheney and Bush. The photos should be released, asap, then we can decide if they represent criminal acts or not. President Obama wishes to protect our soldiers, but the failure to show what actually happened protects either the miscreants that did the torture, or, if the torture did not actually happen, then those that lied about that.

    Release all of the photos. Let the chips fall where they may.

    Of course, if the photos show actual torture, then we have a legal problem with those that ordered the torture.

    Are you just Mentally deficient? ALL the photos involve LEGAL cases AGAINST troops and others. ALL of them were EVIDENCE used to prosecute people for breaking the law.

    Now you DUMB ASS, explain how Bush or Cheney are responsible for THAT.

    YOU ARE Mentally Deficient. EVERYONE of the photos are from CRIMINAL cases and were used AGAINST the people that committed the CRIMES. This has been reported MORE than once. And it has been repeated on this board more then once.

    Dumb as a FUCKING ROCK indeed.

    Rocks has an agenda, and no facts will get in the way of his arguement. I see it with his politics, and I see it with his global warming politics. He will use fraudulent data to support whatever cause he is promoting. He will never acknowledge the truth, when it's presented to him.

    If the troops have been prosecuted, what is the story? What is the purpose of releasing the photos to the public anyway?
