Bombing of Funeral: False Reporting by Reuters
Arutz Sheva ^ | 8/8/06 | staff

Posted on 08/08/2006 2:33:57 PM PDT by pissant

(IsraelNN.com) The day after it was revealed that a Reuters News Agency doctored photographs to show an anti-Israel bias, the news service incorrectly reported Tuesday afternoon that the IDF bombed a funeral procession in Lebanon.

Reuters has corrected without apology its earlier story that the IDF strafed a funeral procession and updated the report to state that the bombs struck a village at the same time the funeral was taking place, adding that "the air strike was not in the immediate vicinity of the funeral

Imagine that. I wonder how many photos of the funeral bombing were printed?

Yep, a retraction/apology won't keep ignorant muslims from
rioting, but that's the point isn't it.

The disturbing make believe photos from this disturbing make believe event are shown below. Don’t allow children under the age of 30 to view this horror caused by Israel. Of course, this is Bush's fault.

No Problem! Here comes your Bomb!

If 4 FDR terms were good for the America after Pearl Harbor? How about at least 3 terms for GW after 9/11 to complete the WOT?

I reckon bombing a funeral in Lebanon right now is a pretty easy thing to do.

The thing that interests me about FDR is that if he had served only 2 terms (like a mere mortal president) then he would have been considered a failure. It took his extra innings for him to get into the black in his presidential account books.

You are correct.

As much as I detested FDR, he seemed to do the correct things to win a global World War.

He was the right man for his time. We may not agree with everything he did but there was a very real possiblity that without him there could have been either a Communist Revolution in the USA, a fascist revolution in the USA, and/or the total Nazi or Soviet domination of Europe.

I posted on another thread...

Fox's Gretchen Whatever-her-name said, not once, but, TWICE this morning that Israel had bombed a funeral procession in Lebanon killing 13 people!

I have sent Fox two emails asking for a correction with an apology. I am holding my breath as I await their reply...not!

"Now you're talking! GWB needs more time to clean up this mess left behind by years of liberal and Democrat neglect."

With that insight, GW needs to be re elected at least 2 more times.

Considering the left thinks Dubya has been "selected, not elected" and that his presidency has "no regard for the Constitution", I say we tell them "Okay, you are right! He gets to be elected 2 more times!"

And don't forget that the MSM bought hook, line and sinker the claim that Israel killed 40 people in a strike on Saturday. The massacre was covered far and wide, even many hours after the Labanese PM "corrected" the death count to one. PATHETIC

The spirit of Baghdad Bob is present at every single white house press conference. Sometimes in the body of David Gregory, other times in the body of Helen Thomas, but always, every time, he's there.

Nice sentiment, but inaccurate.

1933~1945, so only one term after Pearl.

Given the thread I read yesterday about the guy at a wedding in Gaza losing control of the AK he was firing in the air at a wedding and greasing a couple of kids, I don't think they're inherently very safe either.

Not exactly... they'll build you a school as long as you don't mind if they put an armory under it. Actually, they'll do it whether you like it or not. And they'll feed you if you promise to do what you're told.

Very scary stuff. That is why I go into orbit when our long time trolls tell us that we need to lose elections to punish GW and the Republicans.

Buncha Republicans in 1950 thought this was a bad idea. Irony is that it's affected Republican presidents the most...
