Obama Makes His Own Statement as a War-Time President

Hosted by

For 18 years, there was a ban on media coverage of the return of fallen American soldiers from overseas combat. President Obama lifted the ban this year. Early this morning he flew from the White House to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to observe the transfer of 18 coffins from a military plane to the custody of grieving families.
