With the availability of all that whiz-bang U.S. security technology, the paranoid team of Bush/Cheney couldn’t produce one speck of credible evidence of Iraqi WMD. But then, when the evidence of global warming (courtesy of their own spy satellites) was staring them in the face, not one speck of evidence ever informed their behavior, let alone leaked out to the American people … until the Obama Administration declassified these photos last week. It’s right there in black-and-white. Or, enveloping black and memory of white.

And then, adding to the saccharine of what you can-and-can’t see from certain states of the union, these images were taken of the Alaskan port of Barrow.

The Guardian has the backstory.
