By now, you’re probably aware that Associated Press photographer Julie Jacobson took exploitative photos of dying Marine Lance Corporal Josh Bernard, after he was blown up in a Taliban ambush in Dahaneh, Afghanistan. Muslims are now posting Jacobson’s photos of the late soldier on their websites in order to brag about killing Americans and using it to recruit new jihadis.
Jim Bennett, a weekly columnist for the Monmouth Review-Atlas and a blogger at The Bloviating Hammerhead, has the complete story–a column, as well as an exclusive audio interview he conducted with the Marine’s grieving father, John Bernard.
I recommend you read it and listen to the interview. Sadly, the person with the coldest heart in this story–Ms. Jacobson–is the one who really needs to read and listen, but she won’t. The Taliban’s work comes first for the AP.
For Joshua Bernard, America came first, and the home-schooled religious Christian made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
Joshua Bernard, Rest In Peace.
