Obama Pays Surprise Visit to Dover for Arrival of Fallen Special Forces

ABC's Mary Bruce reports: President Obama has arrived at Dover Air Force Base to pay his respects to the fallen service members who lost their lives in this weekend’s deadly helicopter crash in Afghanistan and to witness the official dignified transfer of their remains. Due to the catastrophic nature of the crash, the remains of the fallen are “unidentified” and the families are not in a position to grant approval for media coverage of the arrival. Therefore, the meda will not have footage of the president’s visit.
