Iran fakes US photos
An Iranian state news agency used the Photoshop program to manipulate photos in order to try and back up claims that the US was behind a spate of bombings in southeast Iran , a popular American blog said
But an American blogger was quick to point out that the image has been manipulated. Little Green Footballs, the weblog of Charles Johnson, who was the first to call attention to manipulated photos by Reuters during the Lebanon war , said his readers tipped him off "to a blatant Photoshop fraud in an article claiming to have discovered US weapons in Iran."
"A close look (actually, you don't have to look that closely) shows that many elements of this picture are cloned over and over," Johnson added.
The blogger reproduced a flashing animation created by one of his readers, showing that grenades, money stacks, demolition charges, cans, and ammunition boxes have all been cloned in the image.
Is this something like all those photographs that Colin Powell presented to the United Nations of all of those illegal weapons and weapons labs, etc. that iraq had before we invaded a sovereign nation without any provocation?
hey NEM ... do you know about the daily kos? Just wondering. Because honest-to-goodness (and cuz I'm a nice guy :D ) I think you would like it. :D
