Oh, how it hits home, becomes so very personal.
Just viewed a black&white photo aired on CNN of those killed (some shot in forehead) in the POW situation... they did not show faces, however. One POW soldier is female, (did not air the POW clips from AlJazeer TV) ..said her feet are wounded and bandaged.. this is so hard, you guys...

I thought it was not permitted to show these video clips or even still photos...my God, their families are still in the process of being notified !
Would you want to see your son/daughter on Nat'l TV being held as a POW, wounded and bleeding before even being NOTIFIED? How traumatic would THAT be to the family unaware? GEEEEZ !!!!
CNN only showed one still photo of 2 KIA, but no identifying features.. (only below the shoulder body photo.) Apparently, these were shot execution style in the forehead, according to reports...
I would think this is permissible, (the photo) but disturbing to us all nonetheless.
