"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

White House Concerned With Image Over New Abuse Charges

While under ideal circumstances - ideal being: having an administration in the White House that has respect for human rights and international law - I would be disgusted that the primary concern for said administration is political fallout. But in light of the last 5 years of mind numbing arrogance, the current administration's relatively prompt concern with their image being tarnished by more human rights violations, it is rather quaint:
In the midst of a public diplomacy campaign to repair the U.S. image abroad, the Bush administration on Thursday tried to stem the fallout from the fresh abuse allegations as Islamic clerics expressed outrage and warned of a possible violent anti-American backlash. The U.S. military declared the abuse "repugnant" and vowed to investigate, while the State Department directed U.S. embassies to say the actions don't reflect American values.
