Flag-Draped Coffins Said Those Of Shuttle Columbia Crew

A pathetic propaganda dodge. There are far more than 7 coffins in most of those photos, and no flag of either India (Astronaut Kalpana Chawla ) or
Israel (Astronaut Ilan Ramon) to be seen anywhere.
Was it seven crew who died in the Columbia event? I believe the number was at least very close to seven, and think seven probably is the correct,
The question was meant rather rhetorically; the point being that eighteen rows of coffins could not possibly be of the relatively few people who died
in that Columbia accident. Eighteen coffins, even if side-by-side and thus providing eighteen rows consisting of one coffin each, would be too many;
let alone eighteen rows of multiple coffins each.
"A pathetic propaganda dodge." Certainly seems to be that, propaganda, and an awfully pathetic attempt.
The suspicion of propaganda is also well supported by the fact that Bush et al have been working to avoid showing pictures of coffins of troops
returned from Iraq. This has been an incessant matter, for them to keep this information suppressed.
The lies don't cease; being relentlessly manufactured.
Edit: By the way, as those of you who have been using this site's forums for some time will recognize, I'm new, here; and, given that I have not
yet introduced myself in the forum reserved for that purpose, I'll just say: a) hello; and, b) it's good to see that there are people communicating
on rather important, while un-/under-reported stories, and sharing related views.
