The Return of Our Fallen Soldiers: Another Obama Photo Op?


Media coverage of the arrival of our fallen Soldiers was banned to respect the wishes of bereaving families. President Obama chose to not only take official photographs despite other U.S. dignitaries excluding their staff photographers, but also distributed a photo of him saluting the caskets to the media. I don’t think I am politicizing by pointing out the disrespect and narcissism of this decision.

Just so I am clear, I would have understood had this picture been used strictly for White House releases. But to take the deliberate step to distribute to the media is beneath a Commander in Chief. He owes an apology to the families of the fallen.
