Sanitized war

Photo District News through Editor & Publisher reports that one of the commands in Afghanistan has issued a directive barring photos of dead or dying military members.

This follows the controversy over the AP's running a photo of a dying Marine.

AP says the Pentagon has the policy under review.

It's a taxpayer funded war and the men and women who engage in the fight clearly know that death is part of the job description.

The photos are public documents and the general public has a "right to know".
