The liberal media is so caught up in perpetuating the supposed "abuse"..they did not check their sources for authenticity. This is what we're up against in America..the liberals do not care how they defeat President Bush. They just want him gone..even if they have to lie.

BOSTON, United States (AFP) - The Boston Globe newspaper apologised for running a photograph of graphic images purported to show US soldiers raping Iraqi women.

An editor's note said the photograph was "overly graphic" and acknowledged that the purported abuse portrayed had not been authenticated.

"Although the photograph was reduced in size between editions to obscure visibility of the images on display, at no time did the photograph meet Globe standards," the note said.

In earlier editions, the photograph -- portraying Boston city councilor Chuck Turner and activist Sadiki Kambon showing the purported rape images to reporters --was large enough for the sex acts to be seen.

While the newspaper acknowledged questions over the authenticity of the rape images, it did not directly address accusations by an Internet news site, www.WorldNetDaily.com, that they were known fakes from a pornographic website.

Boston Globe ombudsman Christine Chinlund said she had been unable to locate the source of the images.

"My attempts to figure out where the photos originated have failed," Chinlund told AFP. "The websites that they allegedly came from have been taken down, so it's impossible to say."

The published Globe apology came amid the growing furore over authentic images of US soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners of war near Baghdad.

I'm waiting for a newspaper to post the slogan, "We're here to deliver the news, even if it isn't true."

There were also pictures shown a while back that were supposed to be pictures of GI coffins returning to the US, when in fact they were archive picture from NASA from when the shuttle Colombia astronauts' remains were buried.

From what I've heard, there have been pictures taken during the first gulf war being circulated as being from the recent one.

So tell me. How many fake "abuse" photos have wound up in front of the US Congress as well?
