They were apparently released because "Obama argued that "withholding these memos would only serve to deny facts that have been in the public domain for some time."
There are other truths that our government still hides from us today that have been leaked. I dont see them releasing the true information on those things anytime soon. Theyre picking and choosing what to reveal, and I believe there was a cynical motive behind the release to these documents. Not because "the people deserved to know". Please- stop with the holier than thou crap.
I feel as if there is more to their true intentions of releasing these documents the day after the tea parties. Was it to shift the negative focus off our current Administration back onto the previous? To make themselves look "better"? Or just because? What say you ladies?
You can read the real documents at docstoc.com by the way.
IMO, neither party releases information that isn't good for their own agenda. The fact that we currently have the Democratic party in office just keeps my focus on the Democrats in office. I think they are releasing information because it suits their agenda, not for 'the good of the nation'. Maybe this is a way for him to reason his 'America is arrogant' tour, IDK? All I know is that there isn't any more transparency from this administration than we've had from others.

"The entire issue of torture has to do with the Bush Administration !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "
I didnt want to post this so people could argue about the torture that went on during the bush administration, we all know its inhumane whether theyre suspected terrrorists or not.. lets get past that part please.. My question has to do with the intentions of the releasing of the documents.
