Mark "Screw Them" Moulisas (aka Kos) has found a book that he can support: Unembedded.
It shows an "unbiased" view of the war in Iraq through photos of four photojournalists that were in Iraq and not attached to any US military units. At least, "unbiased" in that it doesn't show any US troops in a favorable light and presents images almost entirely from the view of the insurgents.
Photos from UnembeddedGiven the amount of other books available and sources of information, why is it that Kos takes this opportunity to promote this book? I went to the site and reviewed the photos... not a single photo of our troops interacting in a favorable light with the Iraqis. And that's not because this never happens, because there are plenty of shots in existence.

Unembedded is a stunning book of photographs from four photojournalists roaming Iraq without U.S. military escorts. Over the next week I'll be featuring photos from the book.For the impatient amongst us, you can see more pictures from the book here.

A young boy watches his relatives repair a rocket-propelled grenade launcher in the home of a Mahdi Army fighter.
This is similar to the Pulitzer Prize nominated photos which were clearly pro-insurgent from last Spring.

Not MY Enemy (none / 0)And they're amazed when we say they don't support the troops?
The Mahdi Army were fighting an illegal and immoral foreign occupation. And rightly so. If they tried to occupy Brooklyn I'd regard them as "the enemy," but in Iraq they are freedom fighters. Remember that they launched their uprising only AFTER the occupation government shut down their newspaper. Its a hard truth to swallow when they are shooting and killing U.S. soldiers. But thats the price of being on the wrong side.
Bill O'Reilly is a Terrorist sympathizer.
