"As long as we don’t see their coffins, the president apparently believes, maybe we’ll forget about them. He’s wrong. We won’t forget their sacrifice. And we won’t forget how many young Americans never came home from a war that, to this day, President Bush is still trying to find a reason for — just like he’s still trying to find weapons of mass destruction, yellow-cake uranium, long-range missiles, bomb-carrying drones, Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein."
