Re: In defense of Obama not releasing the "photos."
Yeah, I'm not sure it's necessary either. The torture itself is the problem. Releasing photos isn't going to prevent it from happening again, and it's not going to help prosecute the people that deserve to be prosecuted. I think torture is worse than it looks. A photo of a guy deprived of sleep for a week isn't going to be as shocking as it should be.
Honestly I think a lot of crazies would get off on seeing more torture photos and I'd rather not give them the satisfaction.
