The only way those bullets hit her house was if someone threw them at her house.

You see, they’ve never been fired. For those of you unfamiliar with firearms, only the little copper-looking tip is the actual bullet. The larger, cylindrical casing below it holds the primer and the gunpowder that propels the bullet out of the firearm.

Nice going, AFP! Proof again, that members of the MSM are often dupes for terrorist propagandists, and know very little about things military.

Look at it like this: That picture had to have passed through at least several news people, including AFP’s editors, before it was posted. An AFP editor chose that picture as representative of the printed story. And none of the people in that chain knew anything about guns...

Here’s a link to a screen shot of the original story, since AFP will probably soon remove the picture of the Mahdi actress and her magic bullets.

This is rich. I wonder if she heard the crack as they passed her ear, the velocity had to be at least 25 feet per second.

Thanks for the ping, George. It’s the laugh of the morning.

Unbelievably enough, after the last few years of their antics I now hold reporters and news editors in lower esteem than trial lawyers.

I have a feeling that, had the news media been a profession in his time, Shakespeare's line would have been "First, we kill all the reporters"

So, our side now has no rifles and have to throw unfired bullets at the enemy and "innocent" civilians.

More proof of how the dumb mediots never miss a chance to try and smear our warriors.

If you got to the AFP photo page on Yahoo, there is a whole series of photos of such women wailing because their sons were hauled away for being terrorists.

My guess is that this woman’s Little Abdul had these toys lying around the house and that’s how she came up with a couple of unfired rounds.

This goes beyond not knowing anything about firearms.

I know virtually nothing about them myself, but it doesn’t take any knowledge to see that they weren’t USED at all! One could almost make the case that by supporting this story, one is actually pro-terrorist; because there’s no way anyone could make that kind of mistake.
