And now the woman who took the shots, as well as her husband, has been fired for taking the pictures.


Actually, she didn't take these shots -- she took a picture in Kuwait and it made its way to the Seattle Times, where it accompanied this story on the front page. (Here's an interesting article detailing the editors' decision to run the picture.)

Then, a few days later, the DOD apparently granted The Memory Hole's FOIA request. I'm pretty sure that those 361 photos were official Defense Dept. photos, taken by military photographers. (Which, incidentally, makes them public domain if I'm not mistaken.)

It still sucks that she got fired, though. She was doing a public service by allowing the Seattle Times to use her picture.
