The Jawa Report ^ | August 06, 2006

Posted on 08/06/2006 7:35:15 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing

Does this go in the sidebar? I think it does. If you agree, would you mind putting it there for me? I don't want to get accused of abuse again.

Thanks.

Was this picture taken by the same man that Reuters just let go?

That's not an F16 shooting missles, it's an F16 dropping flares, chaff, and AAA counter measure designed to mask the planes signature.

This idiot loves the clone tool. Jeez, you'd think that he'd have the intelligence to be a bit more discreet about his fakery. His stuff is just plain obvious.

It probably would fool the ignorant, but I knew it was flares as soon as I saw it. I actually wondered initially what the fuss could be about until I read far enough.

Reuters has been whoring for radical Islam since day one. Remember its first reaction to September 11 was to announce that it would discontinue use of the word "terrorist" because "one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter." Now Reuters is doctoring photos to manipulate its readership into opposing Israel. Reuters is now a legitimate target in the war on terrorism because it is colluding with a terrorist group.

Now every photo ever taken by "Adnan Hajj" should be pulled from the rotation.

Charles (on Drudge just a while ago) suggested that "Adnan Hajj" gets around too much to be one person, that it is probably a group of stringers handing off this crap to Reuters.

To say nothing of the obvious question - how do missles get behind the F-16?

This is great. Rather is proof that once credibility is lost, it is not regained. Reuters will never be the same. Every report will be tainted.

From your Jawa link, scroll down to the most recent post by someone called JMS (9:40 pm) and look at another photo. He/she raised the following issue on another photo:

"A couple of things stick out as being immediately wrong with this photo. First off, look at the line that separates the lower half of the photo and the upper half (where the smoke begins). It looks a bit too perfect and too distinct to be a natural hill top." "More importantly, however, check out the direction of the shadows in the lower portion of the picture. Note that the Sun is behind and to the left of the photographer. Shadows are being cast upwards and backwards of the buildings. However, check the mountain behind the smoke. What's missing? The dark smoke does not appear to be casting any shadow on the mountain behind it. Now, granted, the mountain in the background could be farther away than in appears in the photo, but things just don't seem to add up. "

An F16 flies mach 1.6-8 max and any missle fired at least twice that. One wonders why the missles fired are behind the firee (our secret "change up" missles)?

Perhaps it is time for people to advise those same media sources that if they continue to run Reuter's reports that their subscription will be cancelled... and mean it! That will not only get the publishing media's attention but that of the dirt bag Reuter editors which release this kind of crap!
