"Freedom" of Information

Mikaela says:
Last week, the Pentagon was forced to release photos of American soldiers killed in action being sent home. Until recently, the US government refused to make these photos public, citing security reasons. Now, they claim it is to protect families. While some photos will still be taken "for historical accounting," new photos will still not be released, and just in case someone else goes to court to force the issue, the Pentagon will keep picture-taking to a minimum.
