Will Obama lift the "Dover Ban" on flag draped coffins?
I was just watching the repatriation ceremony on the CBC, for those 3 Canadian boys killed in Afghanistan on the weekend,and it reminded me of the US ban.

1. All I know is, he damn well better
There's a whole host of bans and regulations that Obama needs to do away with in the first 100 days, and this should be one of them.

2. Yes, he should. That ban was shameful. It was done to prevent the American
people from seeing what the war was doing to us, to keep us from the truth.

Obama is not hiding anything. He will give the families of the dead the respect they deserve and I am sure he will help them in any way he can and will attend services that it is possible for him to attend.

3. great question
I was actually thinking about this same topic yesterday and wondering whether Obama has given any input. It would certainly help our "guitar hero"/American Idol/Dancing-show-dujour crowd understand what is going on out there once the curtain is peeled back.

4. How about lifting the bans...

showng people jumping from the WTC to escape the flames.

Reality is reality. Maybe inspire new investigations.
