Unfiltered Photos From Iraq, Including Dead Iraqis
warning: graphic photos below
The Under Mars website contains almost 1,000 photos sent in by military personnel in Iraq. It provides a completely unfiltered view of life on the ground, with neither the Pentagon nor the press getting to decide what is shown.
The photos include soldiers posing, horsing around, taking leaks, catching some Z's, attending religious service, and on maneuvers. Others capture sunsets, weapons caches, sandstorms, tanks, blown-up tanks, locals, palace interiors, and found jewelry. One very striking photo shows a soldier with Psalm
21 23 written on his helmet.
The most controversial photos start in Gallery 52 and run for several pages. We see the broken, bloodied bodies - and body parts - of Iraqis. This photo and this one show that someone has stuck a glow-stick in the skull of one dead man.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
