Wacky Journalism


#1

Been busy of late, but I figured I'd drop in with something that caught my attention. The photo is of a woman holding up two rounds she claims struck her house. Anyone notice something blatantly wrong? I'll provide the caption for the circumstances, as it was reported.

"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)"

Real smooth journalism...

Oops!

But there's no such thing as propaganda on the anti-american side.

Maybe they didn't have any rifles and they threw the cartridges at her house.

"All the news that is print to fit."

All I want to know is what material did they use to make those bullets? They look amazingly brand new! Is this the new, super-secret alloy that all of our tax dollars is paying for? Technology is amazing!
