Looks like the Anti War Liberals and their paper the Daily Mirror that has been printing loads of 'photos' of prisoner abuse, are about to get their ass's served on a plate here in the UK.

UK Defence Minister will tell Parliament today that pictures are Bogus, and were staged by reservists here in UK.

Also, Right Wing Press is out for blood… Editorial in Todays Daily Express lays blame for Nick Bergs killing at the door of the Daily Mirror for fueling the Anti-coalition anger with their bogus pictures.

Our Anti-war liberals are in for a shitstorm of trouble now…


Daily Express – Inquiry 'will show photos are fake'

The Government is expected to say that newspaper pictures of British troops allegedly abusing Iraqi prisoners are fake, according to sources at the Ministry of Defence.

Armed forces minister Adam Ingram is likely to use an appearance in the House of Commons to reveal that an investigation into the Daily Mirror photographs has concluded they are not genuine.

The Mirror has published a string of photographs apparently showing British troops mistreating Iraqi prisoners.

But a Royal Military Police probe into the veracity of the pictures is understood to have concluded that they are false.

That will lead to renewed calls for Mirror editor Piers Morgan to resign.

One of the photographs appears to show a soldier from the Queen's Lancashire Regiment urinating on a prisoner while another allegedly shows the captive being struck in the groin with a rifle butt.

The authenticity of the photographs was questioned soon after their publication in the newspaper around two weeks ago.

It was claimed the soldiers' uniforms were too clean and Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon this week said a lorry seen in the pictures was not even in Iraq at the time.

He said the pictures appeared "increasingly like a hoax". There were also claims that the photographs were faked at a UK Territorial Army barracks in Preston.

Prime Minister Tony Blair went further than Mr Hoon, telling MPs that the photographs were "almost certainly fake".
