Writes a friend of mine who was an infantryman in Somalia and other places, and who has actually killed in combat [referring to CNN’s editing out the death scene]:

“I am tired of the mainstream media sanitizing news footage of these wars. I think it is disingenuous to show combat footage up until the death scene. In my opinion, they need to show the blood and guts and get a real taste for the horrors of war. I think that if people got to see the gruesome, they’d be a little less eager to “kick ass” for Haliburton, KBR, and XE (formerly known as Blackwater).”
