He just couldn’t do it folks, he couldn’t greet the Dignified transfers without a photo op, nope he just could not respect the families wishes that NO pictures of the ceremony be taken.
Thirty of our brave heroes who lost their lives in Afghanistan – 22 of those being from SEAL team Six – were flown into Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.
19 of the 30 American families of the dead soldiers objected to media coverage, in this case no family could give permission because any given case could contain the remains of troops whose families did not want coverage.
Obama attended the the ceremony called a “dignified transfer” for those killed in the worst single loss in the nearly a ten 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.
Doug Wilson, head of public affairs at the Pentagon, claims the department did not know the White House photographer was present and had no idea a photo of the event was being released until it became public.
So they could have had a terrorist on board too and wouldn’t have known it, if they don’t even know they have a white house photographer on board, how safe was obama during that trip… sorry guys, not buying that lie….
How disrespectful can the president be, to dishonor the families of the fallen. obama just couldn’t let the ceremony take place without a picture of him in it some where, so he could say to the world, look at me, I am here greeting the fallen soldiers..
Thanks for nothing obama, you were there to gain honor for yourself, the fallen just happen to be the one you used to do it…
You are a disgrace and when all is said and done, you lost any honor you may have had, releasing that picture and our right disrespecting the fallen hero’s and their families ….
