More Flak from Military Public Affairs

isaf media ground rules-1

Importantly, if it were against rules to publish photos of wounded locals, the Army would not have released this photo, which I made in 2005.  Military Public Affairs released this photo (illegally, in breach of my copyright protections) before I did.  Here is the photo of a young Iraqi girl, who died shortly before Public Affairs illegally released the photo:  Little Girl.

And so if releasing this is against the rules, public affairs surely broke those rules when it suited them.  However, paragraph 21 makes no such mention.  There is nothing wrong or illegal against my releasing such images.  Nothing is stated or implied that precludes release.

Distant Public Affairs officers are wasting the time of the busy combat leaders here.  Public Affairs is wasting my time.  Stop.

The outcome of this meddling will be published on my Facebook.
