Family of slain soldier furious over Moore film


Tammie Eslinger kisses her hand before touching the coffin of fiance Air National Guard Maj. Gregory Stone during his burial at Arlington National Cemetery.

The family of U.S. Air Force Maj. Gregory Stone was shocked to learn that video footage of the major's Arlington National Cemetery burial was included by Michael Moore in his movie "Fahrenheit 9/11."

Stone was killed in March 2003 by a grenade that officials said was thrown into his tent by Sgt. Hasan K. Akbar, who is on trial for murder.

It's been a big shock, and we are not very happy about it, to say the least," Kandi Gallagher, Stone's aunt and family spokeswoman, tells Washington Times reporter Audrey Hudson.

We are furious that Greg was in that casket and cannot defend himself, and my sister, Greg's mother, is just beside herself," Gallagher said. "She is furious. She called him a 'maggot that eats off the dead.'" ...

The anger of the bereaved is very understandable.

It is completely unacceptable for this footage to be used without the family's consent and now evidently against their will. The family understandably regards the individual perpetrator as a 'maggot that eats off the dead.'

This week I watched on Channel 4 News as three sets of bereaved parents (Reg Keys, John Miller, and Peter and Christine Brierley) expressed their anger and disbelief that no-one in their government had taken real, personal responsibility for the (at best) flawed presentation of the intelligence concerning WMD. For the UK, WMD was the legal remit for the war not regime change (Bush did expressly advocate regime change by contrast).

I fully accept Tony Blair's sincerity and personal belief in the war, (even now that he has belatedly moved grounds to the need for regime change). However, if he is a man of honour he should resign - now.

Maggots we will always have with us, and the family of this slain soldier are rightly furious.

But it is even more culpable for a government and Prime Minister to continue to grieve the bereaved and refuse to apologise and resign.

Families of slain soldiers are also furious over Prime Minister Blair's token and half-hearted acceptance of responsibility.
