This is from the May 8th edition of The Arizona Republic:
...In mid-April, when the CBS program 60 Minutes II obtained photographs of the abuse, Gen. Richard Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, sought to delay release of the photos. He testified that he did not consult Rumsfeld, Bush or Vice President Dick Cheney.Someone should remind Dan Rather about this...maybe with a boycott. The New Yorker, too.
"This was not to suppress anything," Myers said in response to a comment by Sen. Mark Dayton, D-Minn.
"What I asked CBS News to do was to delay the release of the pictures given the current situation in Iraq . . . because I thought it would bring direct harm to our troops. It would kill our troops."...
And the next time the military asks you to delay the release of something, think about what happened this time. It's not always about a cover-up like Watergate.
