The Decade in News Photographs - The Big Picture

The first decade of the 21st century (2000-2009) is about to be over. Looking back on the past ten years through news photographs, it becomes clear that it was a dramatic, often brutal decade. Natural disasters, terrorist attacks and wars were by far the most dominant theme. Ten years ago, Bill Clinton was ending his final term in office, very few had ever heard of Osama bin Laden, the Taliban ruled Afghanistan and Saddam Hussein still ruled Iraq - all that and much more has changed in the intervening time. The Big Picture is on the scene.

Wow... Although I am kind of confused why Paris Hilton had to make the cut.
