Would it be fair to say, that Reuter is using "smoking mirrors"

I LOVE the blogs. They are on the Front Line in this war. We are so blessed to have them in these dark days. It makes me proud to be an American that these very feisty, brilliant blog-warriors are working day and night.

It used to be said that a picture is worth a thousand words. That is still true.

A doctored photo is worth a thousand words of condemnation for those who doctored it. photo shop may be fun for a joke or to clean up some zits on the face of the one pictured, but when photo-shopped pictures are accepted and used by a major news source its proof of a bias in that source and means that source is not credible and should be ignored, if not destroyed.

I wonder when the NY Slimes will run a job opportunity for a professional photoshop cropper capable of turning innocent photos into glaring examples of Israeli aggression. Resumes to be submitted to al-Reuters of course.

Reuters admits altering Beirut photo



Reuters withdraws photograph of Beirut after Air Force attack after US blogs, photographers point out 'blatant evidence of manipulation.' Reuters' head of PR says in response, 'Reuters has suspended photographer until investigations are completed into changes made to photograph'
Yaakov Lappin



A Reuters photograph of smoke rising from buildings in Beirut has been withdrawn after coming under attack by American web logs. The blogs accused Reuters of distorting the photograph to include more smoke and damage.




The photograph showed two very heavy plumes of black smoke billowing from buildings in Beirut after an Air Force attack on the Lebanese capital. Reuters has since withdrawn the photograph from its website, along a message admitting that the image was distorted, and an apology to editors.

Want to go nuts? Try to determine who actually owns Reuters. Traded in Europe stock exchanges under the symbol RTG, it is also traded in the USA as RTRSY. Nonetheless, in providing info for the US market it does not list its major owners, institutional or otherwise. Its founder Paul Julius Reuters, a Jew, must be flipping in his grave as Reuters today offers some of the most anti-Semitic fare published in Europe, and subsidiarily in the USA.

Let's just say it. Adnan Hajj is an enemy propagandist agent posing as a photojournalist for the western media. Sixty five years he would have been a Gestapo agent.

That, or maybe Phil Collins:

"...Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off the grin, I know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies..."

A picture of smoke taken by Adnan Hajj on July 13...I would suspect this one is not photo shopped.

Smoke rises from Beirut international airport after being hit by Israeli warplanes July 13,2006. Israeli aircraft attacked Beirut airport and killed 22 civilians in strikes on south Lebanon on Thursday, dramatically widening its reprisals after Hizbollah captured two Israeli soldiers and killed eight. REUTERS/Adnan Hajj (LEBANON)

Here's another one for you ... another appearance by the infamous "Mr Green Helmet" who so ubiquitously posed as a
"Lebanese rescue worker" with child corpses at Qana, and featured again poking smoking rubble for "innocent victims" next day 18 miles away...

Here yet again, courtesy of CBS News, is "Mr Green Helmet", the most widely traveled, most widely photographed Lebanese rescue worker in history...this time supposedly taping red crosses on coffins in the Baalbeck, from a CBS News video featuring the "day after" the IDF commando raid on the Baalbeck. Check out photo at 2:53 into tape -

In both of these photos, the brightness of the explosions seems somehow inconsistent with the brightness/contrast of the foregrounds. In particular it seems that the explosion in the left photo should reduce the brightness and contrast of the building directly in front of it. But it doesn't.

When you've been lied to once, do you ever give someone the benefit of the doubt again? Until I have proof otherwise, I am assuming all Hajj photos are fakes.

Here's another one to investigate:
Is this the same old white-haired dude appearing on both these hezzbollah videos?

In this one he loiters behind the female speaker claiming innocent victims killed in Baalbeck (point :37 on the video)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEmG-aKjk7U&mode=related&search=

In this one, white haired dude claims to speak as head of family of hezzbollah suicide bomber, offering to send the rest of his sons to martyrdom (point 1:24 on video)

So much photo Trickery at Reuters, my head is spinning.

The amount of TREASON in the MSM is making my head spin.

All of these islamic enablers should be rounded up and incarcerated.

They are willfully aiding our enemies on a daily basis.

They will only get the point when their muslim heroes grab them, and their children, and saw all of their heads off with a dull blade.

I believe this story is orders of magnitude greater in importance than some isolated embarrassed photographer who "embellished" his work for some good copy. It shows that the entire news stream from the ME is being manipulated, orchestrated, and choreographed by Iran, Hezbollah, and their sympathizers.

Save the pic, open it with WIndows picture and Fax viewer or whatever you have and zoom in.

Note the difference in pixellation between the buildings in the foreground and the sky and explosion, etc. I am not a photoshop geek, but maybe someone here could explain if that is 'kosher' (sorry, couldn't resist) or not.
