 Jan 10 - Images of a dead bin Laden still dangerous: U.S. lawyer
topic by nightmare - 01-10-2013, 07:18 PM


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Twenty months after U.S. special forces k!lled Osama bin Laden, the United States told a court on Thursday it is not ready to release images taken after the al Qaeda leader's death because they still might lead to violence.
A federal appeals court heard arguments in a lawsuit over whether the government must release the images under the Freedom of Information Act, a 1966 law that guarantees public access to some government records.

President Barack Obama's administration points to an exception in the law that covers documents classified in the interest of national defense.
"They'll be used to inflame tensions. They'll be used to inspire retaliatory attacks," Justice Department lawyer Robert Loeb told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Riots or other forms of violence could threaten American soldiers as well as civilians in Afghanistan, Loeb said.

The government has 52 photographs or videos - the medium has not been revealed - from the May 2011 raid in which U.S. special forces k!lled bin Laden after more than a decade of searching. The images show a dead bin Laden at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, the transportation of his body to a U.S. ship and his burial at sea, the government has said.
Some of the photographs were taken so the CIA could conduct facial recognition analysis to confirm the body's identity, according to court papers.

Two of the court's three judges, Merrick Garland and Judith Rogers, asked questions indicating they were inclined to defer to the judgment of officials in sworn court affidavits advising against release.
"They're telling us that could result in death - not just the release of secret information, but death," Garland said. "Is that not something we should defer to?"
Michael Bekesha, a lawyer for Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group suing for the images, said the government failed to show the danger of releasing the less-graphic burial images.

Judicial Watch also claims that CIA officials might not have followed procedures when they classified the images as secret.

A decision from the appeals court is likely in the next few months. A lower court judge sided with the government in April.
The case is Judicial Watch Inc v. Department of Defense, U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.
Circuit, No. 12-5137.

yeah, special forces is really just a military nomenclature that denotes any type of specialized or elite military division

though i understand that most people think of special forces as army rangers and sh*t like that

sigh, as i explained above, special forces can be used to describe any type of elite unit, so depending on the perspective of whoever wrote the article, thats not an inaccurate description

i can tell you are the know-it-all-know-nothing nitpicker type, so it is what it is

if you guys really want to get nitpicky with the special forces/special ops then technically seals aren't special ops either, they are special warfare.


Not to be confused with Special Warfare (i.e. SEALs), Special Operations, in Navy parlance, refers to dive qualified EOD technicians
