Defenselink[edit]

And yet another request because of the Fema request. Defenselink is the site of the US Department of Defense. It contains about 11.000 images in the form http://www.defenselink.mil/photos/newsphoto.aspx?newsphotoid=11822 . So just loop over the id from 1 to about 12000 and parse each image.
