Photos of coffins

Restriction from publishing photos of flag draped coffins arriving at Dover Air Force Base

President Bush ordered secrecy with regards to the remains of our service people who had given their lives for our country. He didn’t want to have our citizens reminded of the true cost of war.
According to news I have read, the new administration is taking this under review. They have expressed concern about the families involved. This is just a cowardly way of not making a firm decision. No names are given to the press. They were just pictures of the coffins as they were unloaded with flag respectfully draped over them.
What is it about leadership in our country today, where every decision is deferred until everyone has had a say. I can remember when it was said that President Clinton waited until poll results were in before deciding. When I was a Plant Manager I made decisions as quickly as possible. We didn’t have time to waste. If the decision didn’t solve the problem, then we would make another decision and move forward.
