...but I call it putting your money where your mouth is.
President Obama went to Dover Air Force Base last night to be there to receive the latest war dead from Afghanistan. The bodies of 18 Americans were returned to U.S. soil; October has been the deadliest month in Afghanistan since the war started. You'll recall that the ban on photos of the transfer of remains at Dover was lifted last February. Families may make the choice to open the transfer to news media or not. That means that the family of this service member gave the okay.
This image could come back to haunt him, but one hopes it illustrates where his head is really at as he makes the decision about sending more troops to Afghanistan.
