Honoring the Troops or just another Photo Op?

I hope I'm not getting too cynical in my old age, but I just can't help but think this is just another photo opportunity for the President.

He's under the microscope of late and we're especially watching the clock to see how long he's taking to make a decision on adding more troops to Afghanistan.

Could this be a photo op to show he really cares?

Could this be a sign that will lead to 'NO NEW TROOPS'. One of those "I could bare to see more caskets coming home"

Nobody wants to see our children coming home this way. But do we throw in the towel and wait for another 9/11 to happen?

It's not an easy decision. I only hope he isn't using our fallen children for a photo op.

Honoring the Fallen
Standing in the pre-dawn darkness, President Barack Obama saw the real cost of the war in Afghanistan: The Americans who return in flag-covered cases while much of the nation sleeps in peace.
In a midnight dash to this Delaware base, where U.S. forces killed overseas come home, Obama honored the return of 18 fallen Americans Thursday. All were killed this week in Afghanistan, a brutal stretch that turned October into the most deadly month for U.S. troops since the war began.
