Flag On The Play

So after that little fooferal about whether it's apt to think of the Extraordinary Form of the mass as a flag, can we at least agree that it's appropriate for a country to fly a flag?

The Administration doesn't think so; it's refusing to fly Old Glory over our base in Haiti.
The Obama administration says flying the flag could give Haiti the wrong idea.
“We are not here as an occupation force, but as an international partner committed to supporting the government of Haiti on the road to recovery,” the U.S. government’s Haiti Joint Information Center said in response to a query about the flag.
Bah on that. Every other nation helping out there is flying its flag. As Ed Morrisey notes:
The decision not to fly the flag is an embarrassment of weakness on the part of Obama.  Our nation has conducted relief efforts for decades through our military, saving millions of people from death, disease, and starvation.  Like France, Britain, and Croatia, we have flown our flag during those operations not to note occupation but to represent the American people’s solidarity with those suffering from disaster.
