Guess Who's Quoting The ACLU?

The Pentagon is trying to block the release of new video evidence of prisoner abuse at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison, arguing that they would incite public opinion in the Muslim world, according to documents unsealed in federal court in New York.

According to ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero, the real reason the Pentagon is trying to stop the release of the new video and photos is because it demonstrates "the failure of American leaders who placed our young men and women in compromising situations and are now seeking to blame them for it."

The preceeding is a quote from an article at

The ACLU is feeding the frenzy of the Islamic maniacs by its undisciplined presumption. Knowing full well that if these images are made public, there will be more rioting and attacks the ACLU continues to press for their release. There is no reasonable doubt that making the video public will not only assist the muslim terrorists in recruitment but will also endanger the lives of our military and civilian personnel throughout the muslim world and beyond.

If anyone is guilty of trying to place our young men and women in harm's way it is the craven confederacy of the ACLU.

Do not point your accusing finger at our military leaders, Mr. Romero, we have met the enemy and it is you.

Excellent post. I've been wanting to post about this at the main site, but haven't found the right words. Perhaps crosspost this on the main site later tonight?

Al Jazeera has quoted President Bush as well. Do you want to discredit him? Less glibly, of course this information should be released. The fallout is not the issue. The fact is that the voters of the United States must have access to as much non-classified information as possible if they are going to make responsible, informed decisions on the issues that are important to our country. Not releasing these tapes only shows that we are not the open society that we are trying to force Iraq to be. What others do with the facts that are at issue is up to them. By hiding it all we're really doing is looking hypocritical. Exposing our hypocrisy is probably the most powerful weapon that radical Islamists use to impugn the United States' legitimacy. Do we want to give them even more fair ammunition?

The fallout is the issue. Case closed.
