a thousand words

The Associated Press won a Pulitzer prize for Breaking News photography for their work in Iraq. You can see the photos here.

You will note that they all show US soldiers either being shot at, guarding prisoners, or dealing with wounded. The "insurgents" get a photo with a white dove on their shoulder (i kid you not) or else brutally executing an Iraqi election worker. You can see a summary of the controversy that surrounded that photo here.

I do find it amazing that they couldn't manage to fit in a single photo of that little election that the Iraqis had recently. You know the one, where 8 million people ignored the threats of murder to come out and vote. Where they were crying over their chance to finally have a say in who governed them. Any of this ring a bell? No? Didn't think so.
