Photographer Sean Smith of the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper has turned in a powerful series of reports, “Inside the Surge,” [2] that illustrate the disillusionment of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Smith’s videos also demonstrate how the profession of photojournalism [3] is evolving. Unfortunately, Smith’s reports, which combine video interviews with still images, have also caught the attention of Osama bin Laden, who misrepresents their contents [4] in his most recent propaganda video.
