US Secretary of State Robert Gates blocks release of Iraq, Afghanistan torture photos

Read more here:

"Gates said that public disclosure of the photos would endanger US citizens, US armed forces, and employees of the US government deployed outside the US.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) had sued for the release of 21 color photos under the Freedom of Information Act. "
What do you expect from Robert Gates? Everybody knows that all Aggies are stupid.

Here's a paragraph from his Wikipedia page. I'll provide a translation beneath :

" Robert Michael Gates (born September 25, 1943) is currently serving as the 22nd United States Secretary of Defense. He took office on December 18, 2006.[2] Prior to this, Gates served for 26 years in the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Council, and under President George H. W. Bush as Director of Central Intelligence. Immediately after being recruited by the CIA, he served as an officer in the United States Air Force.[3][4] After leaving the CIA, Gates became president of Texas A&M University and was a member of several corporate boards. Gates also served as a member of the Iraq Study Group, the bipartisan commission co-chaired by James A. Baker III and Lee Hamilton, that has studied the Iraq War. He was also the first pick to serve as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security when it was created following the September 11 attacks, but he declined the appointment in order to remain President of Texas A&M University.[5]"

American Interrogator says Torture costs American Lives

You see, Gates doesn't care about our troops deployed overseas - because until the torture issue is settled, all captured Americans are in grave danger of torture by their captors. Maybe I can make this easy for Gates to understand: "an eye for an eye." That is the deal you are making for every member of the American armed services you &^$%. Now tell me how you are protecting those Americans?


  1. "What do you expect from Robert Gates? Everybody knows that all Aggies are stupid."

    Says the person that thinks he's the Secretary of State, not the Secretary of Defense. You Sir, are an idiot.

  2. oh anon - us writers write fast sometimes and miss a beat. I would say I'm not perfect - but as for the idiot part - that is reserved for Aggies - the dumbest people on the planet.

    But I noticed, sir, that you didn't say a word about the fact that
    Gates, whether secretary of torture or not, is still making a deal for our troops.

    Nice work attacking the messenger though - me. Good strategy - I suggest you stick to it - because GAtes and the rest of these cabal of torture-hiders are digging America a deep deep hole.

    But don't worry about the troops my name-calling friend - you just sit there like a dumbass and ignore torture. Quit reading my blog you fool.

  3. Yeah, we're looking for proofreaders here at americansjourney - but you see, we don't have much of a budget like our torturing government - so we just make do with what we have - our brains.

    Yeah, I make mistakes from time to time - but it's up to the reader to verify EVERYTHING on this blog - which means if you don't, you will have to find things from time to time that need correction.

    I wish the anonymous commenter above would please never come back because he's typical of the people that cannot be helped - those who expect spoon-fed "facts" that are "perfect" and "checked"

    For once in commenters life he finds a mistake to hang a messenger with - but not a word about torture. Goof. Missed the whole point.
