Ban on photographing flag-draped coffins has been lifted



In what is definitely a step in the right direction for a more transparent government, the Pentagon on Thursday lifted the ban on photographing the flag-draped coffins of soldiers who have died in combat entering into the United States.

The ban had been in effect since 1991, when President George H.W. Bush wanted to underscore the number of deaths in the Gulf War. And it has continued throughout George W. Bush’s two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, making the wars an afterthought to many news agencies.

Now it’s up to the news agencies to follow through on this decision.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
