I have always said that I would give credit where credit is due.
Yesteday Obama reversed an earlier decision on abuse photos taken somewhere.
A judge ruled that the ACLU was right, that under the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) the photos of abuse against terrorists should be released. We all know that the ACLU has the best interest of America at heart right?
Obama said "not so fast", and that was the right decision.
Those photos would only serve to inflame the hatred against the US, and cause our troops increased danger and violence.
Now, on the other hand, there should never have been an issue. Obama only piqued the curiosity and anger of the radicals "oh gee, what is in those photos they don't want us to see??"
Obama's misstep will have ramifications, but the final decison to not release them was right, and I'm ready to give Obama credit for it.
Besides, anything that drives the leftists in this country crazy makes me happy, and watching Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the crowd watch their messiah falter is priceless :)
