The White House Photo That Sparks Protest
August 11, 2011 /Photography News/ A photograph of President Barack Obama participating on August 9 in a ceremony at Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Del., for the dignified transfer of U.S. and Afghan personnel who died in Afghanistan on August 6, was widely distributed despite the Pentagon's claim that any public depiction of the scene would violate the wishes of bereaved families. In addition, the Pentagon rejected media requests to take photos that showed officials at the ceremony but did not depict caskets.
