Does We Will Never Forget Mean We Should Never View

Foreign Policy has always been a major issue looked at in Presidential Elections. And rightly so.

Commander-In-Chief is kind of a big deal. So when the thing that defined the outgoing president's foreign policy is brought up at the RNC, makes sense I would think.

Could showing something we saw over and over again seven years ago now be inappopriate?

As Keith Olberman of MSNBC says, "At this late date." Does he mean we should never see it again?

Should Pearl Harbor footage be shelved? Is Holocaust footage off limits? What about films? Was Olberman offened by the two 9/ll films released by major studios? Did he think it was too soon?

Was it? What are the rules? Where is the line or where should it be?
