A longtime Pentagon policy bars the media from covering the arrival of coffins carrying the military's dead. But that may change under the Obama administration. I too believe without seeing the toll of this war it leaves us disconnected from the reality of it. It's a matter of national grieving and not just for the families. How do you look at this? For me I see many things like a fallen American who lost their life in a senseless war. I see what the true cost, consequence, of war really is. How do we handle this? I would say that we live in a country in which we have freedom of the press and the press should has the freedom to cover what is happening to the people of our country. It is a sad thing, yes very horrible sad. I believe the photo help tell the story of the war and I hope President Obama do lift the ban.
