It's not what we's worse!

Retransmitting original full frame for context to show full scale of
the number of human shields used by the Palestinian terrorist.

Charles at LGF has an update to that human shields picture I had up yesterday. It appears that AP needed to issue a clarification that the picture wasn't what we all thought. It was even worse.

AP completely misses the point that the Palestinian terrorists habitually surround themselves with kids and other bystanders so that any return fire will inevitably kill or wound at least some of them. Great propaganda value, see? So the "original context" only shows that there were even more kids around the pig with the rifle.

The AP caption with the new photo says:
RETRANSMITTING ORIGINAL FULL FRAME FOR CONTEXT TO SHOW THAT PEOPLE IN BACKGROUND ARE NOT DIRECTLY IN THE LINE OF FIRE — A Palestinian militant fires toward Israeli troops during an arrest raid in the West Bank village of Qabatiyeh near Jenin, Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2006. Four Palestinians were wounded when the army arrested an Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades militant, Palestinians sources said. The army said two Islamic Jihad militants were arrested during the operation.

A little re-captioning is once again in order.
