Massoud Hossaini was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for a photo he took of Tarana Akbari, a 12-year old girl who found herself surrounded by dead bodies after a suicide bombing at a shrine in Kabul.

Did the Pulitzer Prize Miss the Season of Change in the Middle East?

I believe that the Pulitzer Prize this year missed a season of change. Awards like the Oscars, Nobels and Pulitzers determine how we frame history. Hossaini's picture has now become another episode in the never-ending Western fascination with the horrors of the Muslim world.
