More (Yawn) Fauxtography

Confederate Yankee calls shenanigans. I second the motion.

Check out the photos-- and the captions. The captions refer to the casualty vaguely as a "person" and a "victim."

But does this structure look like a home?

Or a primitive bunker?

The photographer doesn't say what this structure is. Or maybe he did, and an editor deleted his description as misleading. But then why not say what this is? It sure looks like a bunker to me, and if it's a bunker, that's not a "person" or "victim" being removed from it.

If that's the case, it's a Hezbollah terrorist, and a legitimate military target.

Why the vagueness about this? Hmmm... I wonder.

Also curious: How the hell did they get him into a bodybag while he was still in the tiny space? And why didn't they put him into bag after extracting him?

Obvious answer: the fauxtographer got to the scene late, after the "person" had already been extracted and zipped into a bag. But wanting a "money shot," the "rescuers" just put him back in the hole for the picture. But they got lazy, and didn't feel like taking the corpse out of the bag first.

It doesn't exactly ease suspicions that this is the same fauxtographer responsible for this fine work.

Your multiple layers of paintaking editorial fact-checking at work.
