Faces of the Fallen 

I'm sure some wingers will think this is unpatriotic (remember the Ted Koppel thing), but via Josh Marshall, I see the Washington Post has a "Faces of the Fallen" website. It's pretty damn horrific. I remember in September a touring exhibit came to Chicago. It was on Federal Plaza, and had a pair of boots for every dead soldier from Iraq. It was the most terrible thing I've ever seen. This website isn't quite as shocking, but it's worth mulling over. All these people should be alive today. And for what? Now we're (re?)taking Fallujah, and I see an article headlined "Gunman roam Mosul." I don't know what else to say.
