Not Good

If Obama thinks release of more torture photos can't be permitted, wait till the new British documentary comes out about a slaughter in Afghanistan based on false information provided by feuding locals, which includes the torture to death of an Afghan citizen by U.S. and Afghan forces.

Update: Debunking the excuse:

Defense Department data and independent experts confirm there is no clear link between the Abu Ghraib scandal and violence in Iraq. To the contrary, U.S. troop deaths were cut approximately in half in the month after the abuse photos broke in the last week of April 2004. Attacks on coalition forces were higher in the first weeks of April than they were in the 14 weeks after the scandal broke.


Drawing a connection between the Abu Ghraib photos and the lethal violence that occurred afterward in Iraq “is opinion, not analysis,” said Anthony H. Cordesman, a military expert with the Center for Strategic and International Studies.


....but hey, do what you will anyway.
