December 28, 2004: ‘Six Navy SEALs sue AP over Iraq prisoner photos’: “LOS ANGELES (AP) — Six members of a Navy special forces unit and two Navy wives sued The Associated Press on Tuesday, saying the news agency endangered the servicemen’s lives and invaded their privacy by publishing photos showing the men interacting with Iraqi prisoners. The lawsuit says the agency erred by not obscuring the identity of the six SEALs in photos that accompanied a story distributed worldwide earlier this month, contending publication of the photos jeopardizes future covert operations and harms the servicemen’s careers. ‘There was no need for the AP to publish the faces of the SEALs,’ James W. Huston, an attorney representing the plaintiffs, said in a press release. ‘In fact, the SEALs showed more respect for the insurgents and terrorists that they were apprehending by obscuring their faces than the AP did for the Navy SEALs who were in Iraq risking their lives’.”
