Obama continues the cover-up of White House involvement in Iraqi sexual torture

President Obama's refusal to release explicit photographs and videos showing U.S., coalition, and contractor military personnel engaged in heterosexual and homosexual rape and molestation at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and other detention facilities in the occupied nation is allowing the Bush-Cheney administration to have a free pass in its involvement in and cover-up of the sordid practices. Obama claims he is trying to protect U.S. troops from retaliation but, in effect, he is only protecting Bush and Cheney by refusing to release the photographic and video evidence that could be used in their war crimes trials.

On November 18, 2005, WMR reported the following:

"There is good reason for the embarrassment of the Pentagon in the affair. The orders to take the sexually-oriented photos and videos, some of which involve teenage Iraqi boys and girls and sodomization by their guards, came directly from a pedophile and closeted male homosexual ring operating in the White House, according to the intelligence sources. Copies of the tapes and photos were sent directly to the White House for the entertainment of senior members of the Bush White House, including officials in the Vice President's office and the Executive Office of the President.

When the photos at Abu Ghraib became public, the senior military command structure in Iraq 'went nuts,' according to an individual who witnessed the cover-up of the affair. 'They ordered an immediate policy of denial about details of the prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib,' said the source. The source added that senior officers were disgusted that lower ranking guards were prosecuted and jailed when the order for the mistreatment came directly from the White House."

On December 22, 2008, WMR reported on the "installation of live streaming black boxes in the White House and the Eisenhower Old Executive Office Building used to stream live video of torture sessions in Guantanamo, Cuba and Abu Ghraib to the Old Executive Office Building office of Vice President Dick Cheney's Chief Counsel David Addington and into the White House, itself. Media reports of torture sessions being taped may have been planted by the White House to deter investigators away from looking at live streaming capabilities in the offices of Cheney and President Bush."

The distinct possibility that Cheney, Addington, and others in the White House were being entertained by rape videos live from Baghdad demands that Obama release what is in the Pentagon's and CIA's possession forthwith. Otherwise, he will inherit the cover-up began by his predecessor and face the legal consequences of such action.

PressTV has reported on the photos WMR ran yesterday, photos that were only immediately called bogus in 2004 by neo-con and Israeli-influenced news outlets, including World Net Daily, Jewish World Review(and its contributor, former Washington Times editor Wes Pruden), Israel Forum, and the Boston Herald. These and other like-minded operations were also front-and-center in attacking Texas Air national Guard documents showing that George W. Bush was absent without leave (AWOL) were fake, even though Republican operatives had taken the originals and faxed, copied, and scanned them several times in order that they lost their "originality." As is known from the Niger yellow cake and other episodes, the neocons are masters at disinformation and psychological warfare operations (PSYOPs).

Unlike Watergate, in which the question was "What did the President [Nixon] know and when did he know it?" the question now is "The President knows and what is he going to do about it?"
