The Power of Images
Post from Ed Brayton on Helen Thomas pointing out a fallacy of Obama's speeches. He talks about the power of images of brutality from Iran galvanizing the world. Thomas asked why, then, he won't allow the publication of the American torture images. Good discussion of why Obama won't publish them. I really love Helen Thomas, read her book, and consider a national treasure like Bill Moyers.
