Blood on our hands

Newsday has a report from the journalist who took the photos of those kids whose parents were killed last night.

Last night I was hesitant to post this picture online. Today I say screw it. This is the face of war folks and I don't feel like protecting anyone from it.

I couldn't help thinking about what must have been going through the minds of the soldiers as they watched this girl scream. They will be scarred by this incident for the rest of their lives. Every time they hear a kid cry they will have flashbacks to this night. 40 years from now they will wake up screaming in the night with images of their own grandkids covered in blood.

This is the American legacy.
