A Special Prosecutor Is Who Needs To See The New Torture Pictures
The big fuss this week was President Obama's total turnaround on releasing the new torture pictures. Despite stating that they were "not particularly sensational," in the next breath he argued that releasing them would put our troops at greater risk, two statements which when combined make no logical sense.
What's really going on here is that Obama has so far resisted in every possible way his duty under the law to appoint a special prosecutor, despite his affirmation that waterboarding is torture, and the arrogant public confessions of those who ordered that torture. Having underestimated the furor for prosecution that the previous release of the torture memos would cause at home, Obama now well knows that these pictures would just increase that pressure.
So we say give the pictures to a special prosecutor, who can then show them to a grand jury. That's who really needs to see them. Obama said long ago, "Make me do it." We don't need more pictures to do that, we KNOW what they did, we just need to keep speaking out about it.
