Given The Choice Between Protecting The Troops And Helping Terrorists, House Dems Are Going With The Terrorists

Obama recently told the fine folks at DoJ to appeal a decision ordering the government to release a bunch of detainee abuse photos.

Senators Lieberman and Graham (the McCain Twins) not wanting to take the chance on a Supreme Court argument, introduced a bill which gives the President the authority to withhold the photos. That bill passed the Senate.

The Weekly Standard is now reporting that Nancy "They Misled Me" Pelosi is caving in to pressure from members of her caucus and pulling the photo language from the bill in conference.

If the photos are released, the left gets to preen, terrorists get a recruiting tool and soldiers, sailors, Marines and Airmen may die.

Good to know what the Democrats priorities are.

Sure, sure they'll say, "No, we are protecting America! We need to know what happened and come clean so it never happens again!"

Yeah, here's the thing, that's bullshit. We know what happened. People have gone to jail for it. We had photos all over the NY Times and every other media outlet ad nauseum for months. We get it.

These photos aren't about "accountability" or "getting to the truth of what happened". They are about the left's ongoing efforts to de-legitimize Bush and what's been accomplished by our troops in Iraq.

The fact that Democrats in the House of Representatives are willing to do this at the price of dead Americans (even Obama recognizes this) speaks volumes about them.
