Hhhmmm....Something Ain't Right
Tuesday, August 14, 2007
Reader Matt D. noticed this AFP photo on Yahoo News and quickly wondering if the projectiles were thrown rather than fired...
Here's the caption that accompanies the AFP phopto:
An elderly Iraqi woman shows two bullets which she says hit her house following an early coalition forces raid in the predominantly Shiite Baghdad suburb of Sadr City. At least 175 people were slaughtered on Tuesday and more than 200 wounded when four suicide truck bombs targeted people from an ancient religious sect in northern Iraq, officials said.(AFP/Wissam al-Okaili)
Okay, is it now acceptable to question AFP's ability to evaluate photos for authenticity (unless the projectiles were thrown or maybe spit at the house)?
