A DNC AD that shows U.S. soldiers being blown up. Remember when they were complaining about politicizing the war? What’s more, the clip comes from Fahrenheit 9/11.

UPDATE: Questions about the networks’ willingness to run this ad: “Are these the same television networks that put heavy restrictions on showing imagery from the attacks of 9/11 because they might be disturbing and (unstated) send the wrong message (e.g. retribution) to the American public?”

ANOTHER UPDATE: Happily (see the update to the post at top) they weren’t actually blown up. It just looks that way.

MORE: “Inappropriate and unacceptable.”
