Maybe President Barack Hussein Obama would like to explain this one to “We the People” and who ever is the GOP nominee for President in 2012 better damn ask him!
Isn’t this special, as reported by the Gateway Pundit, President Barack Obama was against the release of pictures of Osama Bin Laden but Obama had no issue with releasing pictures of a coffins of dead Unites States soldiers.
The official Obama policy:
Photos of dead US soldiers – Good.
Photos of dead Osama Bin Laden – Bad.
This week President Barack Obama stated that the US would not release any “kill” pics of Osama Bin Laden as he did not want to incite more violence against Americans. One would think that popping two bullets in an unarmed Bin Laden’s head would probably have done much the same. However, if Obama has a no release policy of photos, maybe he can explain the hypocrisy of releasing pics of dead American soldiers? How could the release of these pics be beneficial to America? As Weasel Zippers states, Spiking the other team’s football apparently not a problem”.
Now, the Obama administration has decided to open the gates of Dover. In a policy to be unveiled today, Pentagon officials told reporters, Defense Secretary Robert Gates — the only holdover from the Bush administration — will announce that news photos of flag-draped coffins will be allowed, as long as families agree.
