You know what I think?
I think that if they believed in the mission in Iraq and they believed in all the rhetoric they spout about the strong will of the American people then they wouldn't be so afraid to expose said American people to images of the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for their nation.
They argue that its just anti-American forces who want to run this stuff in the hope that it will demoralize the American people. But, if they honestly believe that the American people are strong enough to deal with the price that has to be paid for the goals in Iraq then why should they be afraid what some people want to do with those images?
Unless, that is, even they have lost confidence in their mission and believe the only way to keep the house of cards from collapsing is if no one gets a chance to see what is really going on.
That's what I think.
