War then and now - follow up


Just a short follow up post on War then and now

American Photo's State of the Art blog has a short post for Memorial Day - Why We Don't See the Real Story from Iraq

Among other things it says this:

"...He also notes that since last year the military has enforced new embedding rules that require photographers to obtain consent from wounded soldiers before images of them can be published. In effect, this means photographers must get soldiers to sign wavers before they are even injured--an absurd kind of Catch 22."
which is beyond bizarre... lets wipe the Death of a Loyalist Soldier form the official record - I don't think Capa got a release from the guy between his being hit by a Republican bullet and his hitting the ground
