Some might think this is funny as hell, but things like this are damaging our attempts to win those Hearts & Minds.

As someone who knows a thing or two about Photoshopping images, I would say this one is highly suspect.
The top edge of the sign just doesn't look right, nor does the text.

But this can't be!
The sleuths on FreeRepublic told me it was a fake!

Mr. Lucky says the uniform is wrong.

mass55th says "the original message was removed and a new one put in its place".

lonewacko_dot_com lives up to his name and says "this writing appears a bit too curvilinear".

So who is wrong? The sleuths on FR, or the Marines? Maybe these crack(head) sleuths can notify the Marines that this Lcpl does not really exist, and that the picture is an obvious fake!

It's an obvious fake. I treat it exactly how I'd treat the 9/11-plane picture.

I suppose I should take some encouragement from the fact that the people on FR recognized that the contents of the sign were so offensive, so repugnant, that they had to go to some length to deny the most obvious explanation.

LCpl Boudreaux brought shame on his unit and the Marines.

The only weird thing I see on this photo is, that the background has been changed but the sun position appears to be correct.

Notice that there is a stone wall behind them. You have to look close, but between the two kids there is a stone wall with cracks in it.

This doesn't match the background. The sign looks real to me, but I can't detect where they changed the background except where they messed it up.

It is probably a very good fake.

What a dork. Nothing like inciting the enemy. Maybe when Boudreaux is booted from the Marines he can become a Shiite cleric. Those two boys will be required to regain their family's honor at the expense of the Marines. Perhaps they'll just run at the next convoy they see and blow themeselves up. What a dork.

Apparently, this sign is real:

Well, it is interesting that the Marines "are working to determine whether the claims on the sign are true", not whether the photo is real. This would seem to indicate that the Marines believe the photo is indeed real.

It a fake, I used a PhotoShop program to examine the "cardboard" Sign close up and the pixels are much larger then the rest of the picture, a sure sign that it has been modified.

Also you will notice that when you zoom in on that area the colors are artificial and not well blended.

Oh get over it for God's sake! The one thing that has kept the GI going since the Revolutionary War is his sense of humor.

Marines aren't there for "hearts and minds".

Hmmmn.

The story doesn't say it's real, it says the Marines are only investigating.

I've seen this same picture saying "Go Ohio State beat Michigan."
