ABC's leaking of 9/11 pictures sparks questions

Why?

Why?

Two days ago, the ABC released never-seen-before pictures of the World Trade Center collapsing under the 9/11 attacks. The photos were collected by the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) as part of its investigation of the attacks.

Out of the 2779 shots, only 12 are on public view from the ABC website. Why leaking these pictures? Why in the middle of February? Is there anything wrong in showing it? Is there really a proper time to contemplate these images?

« Contemplate » is the word; the pictures were already labeled as « spectacular » or « exclusive » to echo some media. It sounds like phony headlines from the tabloids who try to spin their yarns.

The ABC has already invoked the Freedom of Information Act to defend its right to possess and publish the unseen pictures.

Don’t be surprised if you can’t find the pictures on this blog. Freedom also works that way.
