More Staged Photo’s From AP-Reuters-Qana

Graphic Warning – Pictures of Carnage

When are we as a nation going to take the media to task for publishing staged propaganda as if it was news. Check out this AP photo at Yahoo of a picture of a young girl laying ‘in the rubble’ of a mosque. Clearly there is no dirt or dust on the photo which was just as clearly laid on the debri to make a propaganda image. Or how about this amazingly well parked tricycle in an AFP Photo which apparently was barely disturbed by the blast in the wall behind it. I don’t know about you, but these are the cleanest rescue workers I have ever seen. Even when wearing dark clothes, as in this AFP Photo, these folks never get any dust or dirt on them (check out the body verses the men carrying the stretcher in this AP Photo). Anyone think this Reuters Photo reallsy shows a mannequin that was able to land in the street upright with the dress it wore barely disheveled? Staged photos should be flagged and the offending media organization taken to task.

    One of the photogs–the only one with a non-Arab name is Kevin Frayer, whom CAMERA has earlier noted for propaganda on behalf of the Palestinians. His wife is ME bureau chief for CTV. The others seems to be local stringers undoubtedly working at the same time for AFP, Reuters, AP and Hezbollah.

    RBT is on the road again with spotty net access. I had to post this one re the Qana incident in Lebanon. I will update later with some other questions the MSM is not probing e.g……

    Roger L. Simon’s blog points to a Ynet article referencing a Lebanese website called Labranoscopie.

    From Ynet news:

    “The Lebanese website LIBANOSCOPIE , associated with Christian elements in the country and which openly supports the anti-Syrian movement called the ‘March 14 Forces,’ reported that Hizbullah has masterminded a plan that would result in the killing of innocents in the Qana village, in a bid to foil Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora’s ‘Seven Points Plan’, which calls for deployment of the Lebanese army in southern Lebanon and the disarming of Hizbullah.

    “‘We have it from a credible source that Hizbullah, alarmed by Siniora’s plan, has concocted an incident that would help thwart the negotiations. Knowing full well that Israel will not hesitate to bombard civilian targets, Hizbullah gunmen placed a rocket launcher on the roof in Qana and brought disabled children inside, in a bid to provoke a response by the Israeli Air Force. In this way, they were planning to take advantage of the death of innocents and curtail the negotiation initiative,’ the site stated.”

  5. Qana-llywood…

    I’m becoming more and more convinced, along with a number of other bloggers that the Qana event was, at the very least, heavily stage managed by Hezbollah.

    The best evidence of prior planning is not to be found in Qana but in Beirut where, as Powe….

    Hope this link works for the picture I wish to comment on


    This photo shows the body of the pacifier child as it is recovered , you can just see the coiled line on it’s chest.

    What’s wrong?

    The baby is down in a depression near the wall, I does not appear to be near a woman or another body you would expect it to be near if they were sleeping together.

    Did the little one crawl away to die?
