This has been discussed quite extensively on a number of other sites (and probably here as well). Here is the original AP caption:

A Lebanese man salvages some of his childrens toys from the rubble of his destroyed house that was hit during an Israeli air strike in the southern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon, Thursday July 27, 2006. Israeli jets pounded suspected Hezbollah positions across Lebanon Thursday, extending its air campaign a day after suffering its highest one-day casualty toll. An Israeli Cabinet minister said lack of agreement on a cease-fire gave Israel a green light to press deeper to wipe out the Islamic militant group.(AP Photo/Hussein Malla)

If you look closely you can see that the Minnie Mouse doll had been photographed upstage, closer to the building. I guess it is possible he picked that up first then went down to the suitcase. But not very likely.

This is a two-fer! We've busted a Hezbo staging the news for photogs in Lebanon. And we've also busted the Reuters caption writer for telling a blatant, Hezbo-symp LIE about the scene.

If we find that any of the photos were photoshopped we'd have a trifecta of Hezbo-symp propaganda disguised as news reports and photos.

He may have been putting the doll back in. Look closely at the suitcase, I don't see tinky-winky or Minnie mouse in it. Can you logically explain why, if it was the last picture taken, minnie and tinky aren't visible?

I sure can't. The only logical explanation for me is that he is returning the doll after staging minnie and tinky, if he is in fact placing the doll in the suitcase. In either case, it's blatantly obvious that this man isn't cleaning up from a bomb, he's emplacing propaganda. Add the proof of how clean the toys are, and this media hit piece is busted.

What was the caption on the AP Photo?

I no longer have that in cache, and the photo seams to have dropped off the radar. Hoping someone has that info...

Er, um.

The fact that the VERY CLEAN green bag of OTHER CLEAN TOYS was place directly on top of the grimy and dusty REAL WORLD debris from the bombing.

That bag hadn't even been in place long enough to get the bottom dirty.

Did you see the WTC bomb victims at street level after the buildings collapsed?

Everything was covered in fine powder. Everything: inside purses, under coats, inside clothes and undergarments.... between sheets of paper in books inside stores in nearby streets.

And you're going to try to pretend that "toys" found in the wreckage of a building just blown up are CLEAN?

This guy COULD NOT, IN ANY WAY, have "picked up" toys from the bombing and put them into the bag..

What I find amazing is that this is nothing new. The MSM has known this type of thing has been going on for years and has not seen fit to raise a stink about it until the blogosphere caught them with their pants down.

The pink doll is being REMOVED from the suitcase. Doll body position tells all.

So, a building has been bombed that likely housed people and their belongings. After the bombing, someone shows up with a nice, clean suitcase and starts GATHERING nice, clean toys from the scene. And nothing else. Ignoring the bodies, the valuable objects. Just the nice, clean toys.

Riiiigggghhhht. The logical explanation, especially given the demonstrated behavior of the Hezbos staging the news and photo ops for the fauxtogs is that he showed up with the suitcase and started emplacing toys for dramatic effect.
