Before the knee jerk two step goes much further I want to interject. The pictures being shown are not of just what our soldiers did, but how about the atrocities that were done like the murders? Remember the pictures taken by the iraqi's of prisoners being tortured, hung set on flame and such from a bridge and then their bodies being drug through the streets? That happened well before the pictures at issue were taken. Or how about the recent beheading that took nearly 15 minutes to accomplish that was shown? that happened before the pictures our soldiers took (weeks ago) theirs. Yet we are willing to stop those photos? Both should be shown if one is shown. No wonder I refuse to watch general tv programing.
The problem isn't liberals. If the Geneva Convention is being violated and there's visual proof, why shouldn't people be made aware of it? To hell with embarassing the Bush administration - what about press freedom? The Geneva Convention means nothing without a means to publicly acknowledge whether or not it is being properly enforced.
And, I might also point out, the liberal media is a myth. The American media is by far more conservative than it is liberal. It is a convenient myth for right wing career politicians who are intent on left-bashing to advance their own interests.
If you don't like the way the images of prisoners are being used in the media, that's fine. Fact of the matter is that I don't either. But find something other than liberals to pin blame on.
