(MILITARY TIMES) Journalists in warzones are supposed to be non-combatants, but Jason Buttrill of The Blaze recently tweeted a picture of himself with a sniper rifle along with the message: “Major bucket list completed. Shoot at #ISIS ? Check!”

The Blaze proudly ran a story Thursday extolling their foreign affairs correspondent for taking part in the Mosul offensive.
