Why the AP is publishing photos of U.S. war dead

Associated Press

AP photographer Brennan Linsley's images from Afghanistan "capture some desperately urgent moments," says AP executive Editor Kathleen Carroll. "We are in the fields with [U.S. soldiers] to document every aspect of war and death is simply a part of that reality." The AP transmitted Linsley's latest photos in advance to give editors more time to decide if and how they want to use the material.
