(el snippo) He also noted an ironic twist: The AP story quoted a Navy source who said that revealing the name or face of special warfare operators could endanger them and their families.
"The SEAL photos had obscured the faces of the insurgents. But when the AP published them, they did not bother to obscure the faces of the SEALs. They did not give the Americans the same respect as the insurgents. It's inexcusable and unprofessional," Mr. Hutton said.
"There was no need for the AP to publish the faces of the SEALs. They added nothing to the value of the story."

Look at what they do at home.Loose lips sink ships, and in this war are very dangerous.
