Wow. Sad.

Thanks to Ace of Spades. Had I not surfed his blog I woulnt have known that the Story was false. I heard it all day long on CNN, and perhaps FOX,(I click back and forth) yet I have heard no retraction yet. perhaps they will come today. Nothing on CNN.com or MSNBC.com, nor fox yet.... Instead everyone parrots everyone else and like all things on a "grapevine" different versions .....

I wonder how many other things I assumed were "gospel" are false?

Update

Look what I found while looking through the yahoo news photo section on the middle east conflict. The photo of the two women above had the following caption from the associated press.
[Two Lebanese women mourn during the funeral of Lebanese citizens in the southern town of Ghaziyeh, near the port city of Sidon, Lebanon, Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2006, after they were killed when Israeli airstrikes flattened three buildings Monday killing fifteen people. Israeli airstrikes hit near a funeral procession in Ghaziyeh on Tuesday, sending 1,500 mourners wailing through the streets and killing at least six people in nearby buildings, witnesses and the town's mayor said.

this photographer has several other disgusting shots of dead people, including a young child... all with smiliar captions.
