I find the use of the word infamous to describe the the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima to be disrespectfull. Maybe you dont know the meaning of the word or it was a feable attempt a sarcasm. It insults all who served thier country in one of the most hellish battles fought by American troops.

Use of the word is out of ignorance - not for intentional disparagement - would be my guess. It's the Archie Bunker syndrome.
