"Almost two months ago I came across some startling images on a little know German web site called Fotos. The photographs were taken in Iraq during the early stages of the war, and provided an unsanitised view of the Allied military presence in that country.You'll have to go to the link, 'cause I still haven't figured out how to post pictures. I'll make that my project for the week.
I remembered the site earlier this week when I thinking over whether or not to respond to the latest string of events in Falluja, Basra and Washington. I didn't post anything about the images when I first found them because I was away from my trusty PowerBook. Anyway, to cut a long story short, when I revisited the site today I found to my dismay that the images had been taken down (having become to costly to maintain). Fortunately the cache of the machine that I had been using when I first browsed the gallery had not been cleared. Much digging later I had an almost complete set of the images."
