The power of images

If the highest muckety-mucks in the Cheney administration admit, repeatedly, that the photos and images from Abu Ghraib which were not released are so bad that mass rioting is sure to break out in the Muslim world--wouldn't that be sufficient for the rioting to take place anyway? Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Myers, various members of Congress and probably others have admitted to the gruesome nature of these pictures and films--the raping of young boys being the most frequently cited atrocity supposedly shown.

Basically, Myers and the rest are saying, publicly, that they are covering up something so awful that it would cause a riot. So why hasn't it? Oh, right. Iraq is a riot that has been going on for over two years now.
