Notice something just a bit different about the two pictures below? According to the NYT’s … they are the same picture, the bottom one posted in newspapers was a fake. Wonder why we shouldn’t believe a word that comes out of Iran. It’s pretty sad when the Iranian government feels the need to digitally doctor pics as a show of force. Iran did not want to show the world that one rocket had failed … instead they embarrassed themselves to the world.
Agence France-Presse said that it obtained the image from the Web site of Sepah News, the media arm of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, on Wednesday. But there was no sign of it there later in the day. Today, The Associated Press distributed what appeared to be a nearly identical photo from the same source, but without the fourth missile.
In the four-missile version of the image released Wednesday by Sepah News, the media arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, two major sections (encircled in red) appear to closely replicate other sections (encircled in orange). (Illustration by The New York Times; photo via Agence France-Presse)
