    Presidents have honored our fallen soldiers by publicly joining  families when they receive their dead. The Bush gang changed that policy because they wanted to hide the returning coffins from the public and protect themselves from any adverse blowback from their illegal war in Iraq.

    The returned dead from the Benghazi massacre, were received by their families and Secretary Clinton,representing the  country, to honor the fallen. President Obama in one of his first acts a s President joined families at 5am at Dover to honor the dead and offer the condolences of the nation.

    There is a difference between hiding our dead and honoring them.
