Anything for that all important SCOOP. It appears the Taliban invited the reporter to take photos and videotape the execution.

Doesn’t that sort of make him an accomplice to murder?

The AP once tried to pretend they weren't the enemy but have since decided openness is their best policy.

A coward recording the deeds of cowards for publication and profit by cowards. There was a time when reporters were worthy of respect. Many of the current crop of “reporters” are beneath contempt.

Dan Rather would be proud of this Taliban supporting, ‘journalist first’, professional.

I don’t see how he could have stopped it, and at least by photographing it he documents the barbarism for the world to see. I think he did the right thing, given the absolutely appalling circumstances.

Did the Associated Press pay for the photo session?

Not go there in the first place and quit being a propaganda tool for the terrorist.

Al Queda/Associated Press assasination of women. The NOW vermin and democrat party cockroaches have no comment, of course. Nice friends you have there, liberals.

Two women talking

A short time later

AP heroic pose of big brave Al Queda assassins

He had plenty of advance notice. He could have called the US commander for the area, and they could have set up an op to exterminate these subhuman scum and rescue the two women.

What that rundown leaves out is that photographer often gets up close and personal with our own troops. If you read the comments on LGF, you’ll see that posters have linked photos of our troops in Afghanistan that are attributed to the same guy.

It's too bad these pictures will have zero impact on the influence and decisions made of our nations leading women like Nancy Pelosi, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Ophra. No outrage over the treatment of muslim women by women that could make a difference.

Did Marlin Perkins ever swoop down and rescue an innocent fawn just moments before being ambushed by a pack of hungry wolves? There’s just certain thinks you do and don’t do when observing animals in their natural habitat... /s

no big deal...when you're up against hostiles a camera looks like an RPG or scoped weapon...just take them out. We actually need more video and still photos of the way these subhuman POS's conduct war in order to throw it in the face of the democrats and libs that think we're the bad guy.

I feel sorry for those women and innocents, but the men in the area are going to have to step up and slaughter these punks.

You don't NEGOTIATE with a group of guys that line up and murder women. I don't care what the Lord and Savior Obamalamadingdong sayeths.

He's a little punk b#tch as well. He's been coddled since day one by granny wiping his butt and telling him he's special and then off to private schools, I'm going to go out on a limb and state that I bet he was an affirmative action admission not a merit admission, and it shows by his utter lack of understanding western civilization, but able to spout off the marxist talking points that made him an "A" at Harvard.

Gawd! thanks for getting my blood pressure up.

Yep.
I wanna know how many tough guys are gonna take on the taliban with a camera?
If he didn’t record it, the world would never have seen it and it never would have happened.

Exactly right. This photographer and the entire AP apparatus are accomplices to murder.
