Former Arlington National Cemetery Public Affairs Director Says She Was Fired for Refusing to Limit Press at Funerals

The secretary of the Army has ordered an internal review to examine the Armys firing last month of the former public affairs director of Arlington National Cemetery. Gina Gray assumed the role of public affairs director of Arlington in April. She quickly discovered that cemetery officials were attempting to impose new limits on media coverage of funerals of the US soldiers killed in Iraqeven after the families of the dead soldiers had agreed to let the press attend. After she pushed for greater media access, she says she was fired in a retaliatory move.

Guest:

Gina Gray, former public affairs director at Arlington National Cemetery.

1. Filth upon disgust upon filth...
That is all these assholes are made of!

We need to honor our fallen soldiers! This is horrible. Someone stands up for what is right, and this is what happens.
