Photos: Hypocrisy on evidence in re torture and 9-11

There are two similar problems with the 9-11 and Abu Ghraib photos: Real names don't match those allegedly involved; and the evidence undermines the RNC agenda.

If the government wants to discredit claims of complicity over 9-11, it is silent on problems with evidence; but makes a stink to discredit the claims about abuse worldwide.

The double standards are curious.

Look at the NYT Headline:

March 18, 2006
Cited as Symbol of Abu Ghraib, Man Admits He Is Not in Photo

I can only imagine what the 9-11 headline would read:

September 18, 2001
Cited as 9-11 Hijacker, Man Admits He Is Not Dead

Rather than focus on the conduct and abuse, the media focuses why the NYT did or didn't get the name right. The US government can't get theConstitution right. Where's the big stink on that?
