Prez Makes Politics Over Dead Heros’ Bodies

August 11th, 2011

The president and his political advisors apparently decided that their political advantage takes precedence over the dignity of fallen heroes and their families.

Pentagon officials had said that because 19 of 30 of the American families of the dead had objected to media coverage of the remains coming off a plane at Dover Air Force Base, no images could be taken. In addition, the Pentagon rejected media requests to take photos that showed officials at the ceremony but did not depict caskets.

President Barack Obama attended the ceremony, called a “dignified transfer,” for those killed in the worst single loss of the nearly 10-year war. An official White House photo of a saluting Obama was distributed to news media and published widely. It also was posted on the White House website as the “Photo of the Day.” It showed Obama and other officials in silhouette and did not depict caskets.

They couldn’t pass up an opportunity to portray their sun-god as a patriot. But I guess this kind of shameful, disgusting behavior is normal within the ranks of the Obama low-life crowd.
