    To my best recollection, there were NO troops coming home in flag draped coffins during the Clinton administration. At least not in the hundreds and thousands as occurred during the Bush escalating War years.

    Anybody care to take a guess at how many American Soldiers were KIA in the Bosnia War under then Commander Guy Bill Clinton?

    I did read the article.
    And I noticed who started the policy, something you seem to want to dissmiss for some reason.

    I just thought I would point it out.

    One soldier died in Kosovo, and 75 died as a result of terrorist actions, including 33 who died in the bombing of the Cole. In 1996, Clinton met the returning coffins of those killed on the Cole as they arrived in Dover. The event was open to reporters.

    The original ban was imposed by the first President Bush after the three network news programs aired a segment showing the returning coffins at Dover on one side of the screen while on the other they showed the President engaged in jocular conversation. (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/...in613301.shtml) While Clinton did not rescind the ban imposed by his predecessor, it was not enforced again until the second Gulf war began.

    I know what's coming, but before you attack and belittle the service records of those men's kids, please try to answer the question. I think its legit?

    Good for him. If I ever meet him, I will thank him for his service to country.
