I am nearly speechless at this shocking display of disrespect for these troops and their families. If these were the children of rich people, would they be treated this way? Most dogs receive a more respectful burial than these poor folks did.
The Air Force had made no plans to inform the families about what had been done with the bodies of their loved ones--one widow had been asking them for four years about what had happened to her husband's body after she found out it was not placed in his casket. (Link to MSNBC article.)
According to this same MSNBC article, the Pentagon apparently thinks it's too much trouble to go and find the remains they dumped in the landfill, and give them a proper burial.
So this is what our soldiers could get for laying down their lives for this country. I can only shake my head and weep for what this country is turning into--how can people be so depraved and heartless?
Sorry for the short diary--but you can read up on this at the links I provided (if you didn't know about it already.) I think our congresscritters need to get an earful over this--and that's how I'm going to spend my time this morning. Whoever was responsible for making the decision to do this to our troops should go to jail.
And just so anyone not reading the articles I linked to knows--this practice was going on between 203 and 2008, so all this happened under the Bush administration. Typical display of their brand of hypocrisy.
