Historical note, emphatically NOT suitable for use in schools.

I didn’t realize this until I got a chance to look at today’s WP, but:

He believed he had taken far more worthy pictures, and that the execution photo was viewed out of context by most people: The slain Viet Cong prisoner was captured after he reportedly killed a South Vietnamese officer, his wife and six children.
