  The Bush administration is not trying to hide anything. It has long been a policy to prohibit the media or the public to view the arrival of remains at Dover Air Force base. This was done mainly out respect to the sensitivity and privacy of the families involved.
Also in a tremendous display of ignorance, the moron that published these photos also published at least 18 rows of pics of the Space Shuttle Columbia astronaut's remains, also listing them as our war dead, so now he had not only agitated the grieving families of soldiers lost in Iraq, but he has also agitated the families of the Columbia crew who had thought to put this behind them.
Even the AP took a photo from this site listed as American war dead and published it, only to find out it was a pic of Columbia's remains.

  well, i'd say the images definatly have more of a negative impact on the nation's morale than on the families of the victims. They are not posting pictures of the dead soldiers hanging by their nutsack from a bridge while angry masked men throw feces at 'em, they are showing flags draped around boxes.

I witnessed maybe 4 different images of rooms lined w/ maybe 20 coffins each, and i know these numbers of the dead fall drastically short of war casualities in the past, but it still conjured up far more feelings of pity and grief (not to say i fell over sobbing) than if i had just heard a number read.

i don't have a dead friend in one of those boxes, so i dunno, but i still think the primary reason is not for protecting the families, their tragic deaths in promoting __________ (fill in the blank)is far more of an atrocity than seeing an image of a coffin.
