006. THE WAR PHOTO NO ONE WOULD PUBLISH       (But we did.)

When Kenneth Jarecke photographed an Iraqi man burned alive, he thought it would change the way Americans saw the Gulf War. But the media wouldn’t run the picture.

This man was surrendering when the Americans burned him alive with White Phosperous, his skinned burned right off his body whilst he was alive.
