I think whether the use of 9/11 images is "right or wrong" depends entirely on your moral standpoint.

On a purely practical note, Bush is going to use any platform he can to get re-elected, whether that be turning 9/11 to his own political advantage, attacking Kerry for being a liberal (why is this such a dirty word in American politics?), mobilising the Christian Right or even engineering a convenient capture of Osama in time for the election.

Campaigns are nasty things, and candidates are (obviously) intent on winning, and rarely worry about how they go about doing so.
