That's exactly my point Ray. The photographer had an agenda to fullfill - seek out an incident in the war showing its brutality that would advance his own position - and that of his agenda - and then call the soldiers the criminals - while the photographer stands by and lets the girl burn until a group of the "criminal" soldiers came to her aid. So, who's the criminal in that situation?
