The Ubiquitous Associated Press

Isn't it amazing that Associated Press photographers seem to be at the right place at exactly the right time? These are photos of terrorist attacks caught on film by Associated Press photographers:

Here and here

Now, either the AP has a photographer on every single street corner in Iraq, or, the photographers are tipped off by terrorists.

Now, maybe I come from a different upbringing than some AP photographers, because I find it nothing short of repulsive to let people get killed so I can get a good picture that might help my career. Not to mention that these photos give the terrorists some free propaganda. Despicable.

UPDATE: Looks like the AP is not the only news organization with ties to terrorists. A CBS news stringer has been arrested as a suspected insurgent. It turns out that he has some photos that look like he was well tipped off in advance of attacks by terrorists.

Interesting post, however, I must say that if you actually looked at the number of journalists that the AP has covering the war in Iraq you would see that it is very possible that there is a photographer near 95% of the locations that troops currently patrol.
