And there it is... When was the last time you saw a photo of the attacks that happened on September 11th, 2001? With all of the talk about the accuracy of the intelligence after 911 and before going into Afghanistan and Iraq, when was the last time you saw this photo?
The media has determined that exposing the public to these photos and video footage would be detrimental to the public well being. It would only further the burden to the families who lost members in these attacks and delay the healing process.
Remember the fear, anger, and compassion after the attacks? Remember how the country rallied together and the outpouring of donations to those in need? Remember how all of the members of Congress stood on the steps of the capitol building and sang "God Bless America"?
Remeber how the Democrats stood behind the President and his efforts to go after the terrorist and those who protected and gave aid to the terrorist? Remember how many of them saw the same intelligence reports that the President saw and made just as strong statements for the removal of terrorist, their leaders, and specifically the removal of Saddam Hussein?
Do you believe the Democrats really supported the President out of loyalty to the country and it's citizens? Do you think maybe they feared that if they were not seen taking a strong stance like the President against the terrorist, it would be political suicide for them? Do you think they would be attacking the President and the war on terrorism if the citizens still had that "Fire and Sting" we all felt after the 911 attacks?
It has been 4 years since we were attacked and there are those who are becoming weak and un-certain of the war on terrorism.
Maybe we need to see and remember the pain that these photos bring from time to time.
