In a departure from tradition, the Bush Administration has banned photographs of the flag-draped coffins of fallen troops returning from Iraq, citing concerns about the families' privacy. This controversial decision came under scrutiny when photos taken by a cargo worker in Kuwait were published in the Seattle Times.
