Sending Our Young People To Heaven For Oil

A woman was fired today for releasing a picture of coffins returning in a plane from Kuwait. I published the picture on this page a while back if you scroll way down. I feel bad that she got fired. Apparently there was a ban on showing pictures of the coffins because it might upset the families of the fallen (meaning it might hurt support for the war if people saw coffins). Let's face it, the families of the fallen are already devastated. I am devastated for them.

I am also relieved to see the great reverence that is taken by soldiers when handling the remains of their comrades. It really is quite touching. I believe that is what the woman wanted to convey when she took the photos. At Memory Hole you can see the coffins on display.

This whole story just makes me hate our secretive government even more.
