I'm glad to see most of us are keeping this all in perspective/humor.

I have a confession:  I think the hold up is due to my antics at the 2010 Winter Olympics.  You see, a large contingent of Russians posed for group photos while celebrating Russia's victory over the Czech Republic in ice hockey.

It was all fun until I crept in to the frame and hoisted the NASA meatball over/behind the lot of them.
They didn't much like that.
:)

Sorry!

I would more expect the pictures, if in England, to be billed as "ISS pictures taken by Tardis!"  But then, of course, we would have seen the pictures released before they were taken...   ;)

I think you are missing the point.  The term "export control" is likely a cover, between the US and Russia not Russia and K-stan, used to get some financial reward for the pictures. 

Cover or not, but trust me, the word "export control" is a very real legal term, arising from treaties like
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wassenaar_Arrangement
and the more general concept of
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multilateral_export_control_regime

and yes, if an item is on the export control list (you know, customs have computers with databases in that part of the world :) ) -- you have an instant excuse for not letting it pass (actually, from a formal point of view, a customs officer risks dismissal and prosecution, if he/she bends the rules and ignores the requirement).

I'm actually quite familiar with what "export control" means.  I stand by what I said.  In reality, how could a set of external pictures (just pictures) of the ISS and orbiter, for which there are countless images already online showing the outside of the ISS or orbiter, be hung up in "export control"? 

It's a smoke screen.
