The picture in #25 shows two different angles. Cover up the bottom part with the man. The apartments are shot from a sharp angle. Then cover up the apartments. The photog was standing slightly below the man. And why isn't the smoke rising upward covering the apartment?
The fireball in the photo on the left looks like a secondary explosion of fuel or some type of explosive. Also, I don't think debris would fly over a hundred feet into the air (the 5 or 6 story building in front of the fireball must be at least 45 - 55 ft tall including the roof), unless there was a large amount of fuel or explosives.
The smoke in the picture on the right, looks like it may be burning rubber. I've seen a used tire storage burning, and the smoke from that site was black and very thick.
Did you see this?
I think they just detected the tip of the iceberg here.
That photo in #25 looks a bit funny...look at the shadow of the man in the photo, it just kind of disappears immediately to his left.
It's just too pretty.
Fake..The shadowing is wrong on his legs, there should be a glow from the flames.
"there should be a glow from the flames."
NOt only that, but no one would be standing that close to the flames, at least for very long.
And wearing a hooded jacket?
I had a very small fire burning yesterday in the back yard, and I could only get within 10 feet for a few seconds. And I only had on a pair of swimming shorts.
Plus the gunman looks like he has black outline all around his body.

A unexploded rocket propelled grenade launcher shell is seen on the floor of an apartment that was raided by Israeli commandos as bullet casings are seen on the ground in the village of Chabriha, just north of the port city of Tyre, southern Lebanon, Saturday, Aug.5, 2006. Israeli commandos attacked near the southern port city before dawn Saturday, and at least five people were killed including a Lebanese soldier in the clashes that followed, sources said.

Someone should mail this to Drudge. It needs more exposure.
That's really bizarre - maybe the same source (kevin frayer) selling his photo unethically to both Reuters and AP, representing that it's exclusive to each.
It may be the Hazbo's are feeding the photos to these news agencies.
STEP RIGHT UP!
REUTERS has the photos! The BIGGEST explosions!
MISSILES photographed while being fired at the INFIDEL!
EXCLUSIVE shots! ONLY REUTERS has THESE!
HUGE smoke plumes! DEATHS of INNOCENTS!
It's ALL REAL! LIVE! Yes indeed!
STEP RIGHT UP!
That one's real.
It is just too perfectly pretty.
This is a big fire (like a fuel dump) redone to look like a Hollywood-esque explosion. The black smoke behind the "peacock" is the original smoke plume. It would take a really big ass bomb to have a prayer of driving the "peacock" contrails that high. But generally, even if they did hit a fuel dump or similar, first-order detonations don't look like this.
The big chunks of something flyin in the air on the upper left hand side suggest to me that someone took a picture of a (much smaller) mortar or artillery strike and composited it over a fuel depot fire.
That makes a lot of sense, althought I am not an expert in the aftermath of bomb drops, or mortar strikes.
It's really hard to tell if that was really from Baalbeck. The report was a hodgepodge of reports filed by different reporters. Honestly, it looks like someone edited together CBS studio footage with other reports. The part with Green Helmet Guy could have been file footage from Qana.
Al Reuters continuing its Jihad
I might see an area of doubling. Center right of the main column compared with due left of center of the photo as a whole. It is in some shadowing.
The fact that the foreground is so clear of smoke and the background so excessively smokey is suspicious to me. I would think that the whole area would be smokey.
