Honor When Due

One of the greatest dishonors ever done to the American military was the Bush Administration's refusal to allow photos of returning American dead from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Our soldiers and their families deserved to have their sacrifices noticed and respected by the people of America. But Bush and the Pentagon chose to hide them from us in order to deceive us regarding the true the cost of their military blunders and their lies.

Now that changes. Now we can see the cost of war and the price paid. Now we can more fully give our respect and thanks to the returning dead. They deserve it.

Let's hope this becomes new Pentagon policy (old policy really) and the ban on photos is permanently erased.

Strangely, this non-Obama Administration action has the right Obama!
