FACT OR FICTION FROM ADNAN HAJJ OF REUTERS..YOU BE THE JUDGE
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.

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.
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?
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.
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.
