No photos please…

No photos please… is the request from Senator Joe Lieberman. The Independent Democrat is asking for the “Detainee Photographic Records Protection Act” to pass Congress. The bill would stop the release of photos of American troops abusing detainees.

Senator Lieberman in a joint news release with South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said, "The President has said that the release of the photos of detainees in US custody would 'put our troops and civilians serving our nation abroad in greater danger.' We agree with the Commander in Chief… The release of the photos will serve as propaganda and recruiting tool for terrorists who seek to attack American citizens at home and abroad.”

In a news conference with Senator Lieberman, Senator Graham said the two Senators would stop funding of the war effort in a filibuster if the bill does not pass.
