11/08/2003 Entry: "Lynch, Cher - we're taking our moral leadership wherever we can get it these days"

"The Bush administration tries to shut down pictures as effectively as it has stonewalled Congressional committees and the bipartisan commissions looking into intelligence failures surrounding 9/11. On the day of the Chinook's fall, the president stayed off-camera on his ranch in Crawford, resting up for his next round of fund-raisers, and sent out only a written statement of grief. Reuters reported on Monday that journalists seeking access to Ramstein, the American air base in Germany to which Private Lynch was first taken, had been told that the defense department would not lift its policy prohibiting photographs of flag-draped coffins, even for the Chinook casualties. The president did not go to the funerals of the nine fellow soldiers who died in the same ambush that led to Private Lynch's capture; he hasn't gone to any funerals for soldiers killed in action, The Washington Post reports.

"Two weeks ago, after spending the day visiting the wounded at Walter Reed, the same hospital where Private Lynch recuperated upon returning to the United States, Cher, of all people, crystallized the game plan. She called into C-Span to tell of her experience talking with 'a boy about 19 or 20 who had lost both his arms' and then asked: 'Why are none of Cheney, Wolfowitz, Bremer, the president why aren't they taking pictures with all these guys? Because I don't understand why these guys are so hidden and why there aren't pictures of them.'"
Pfc. Jessica Lynch Isn't Rambo Anymore, by Frank Rich, NY Times, November 9, 2003

What does it say about the bush admin when Cher has more moral courage than they do?
