Picture Gate: Over in a Heartbeat
It's a suburb of Instanbul. Turkey. Not Iraq.
How stupid can you get, Mr. Kaloogian? You could have undoubtedly found ONE picture, at just the right angle, somewhere within the Green Zone, that would have proved your point that wasn't worth proving. Are you that contemptuous of the people that you'd just throw any picture up there and expect nobody to know the difference?
Well, yeah. I remember during the election there was a picture of soldiers that was cut and pasted to make it appear like there were more soldiers behind the President than there actually were. I actually wrote about it. Phony news releases with fake anchors. Phony journalists in the White House press room. Paying real journalists to write sympathetic stories. Planting stories in Iraq newspapers. So this is right out of the playbook.
Incidentally, Kaloogian's Democratic opponent, Francine Busby, is now polling at 45% in the upcoming special election. She could end this race in two weeks and not have to go through a runoff if she gets over 50. Picture Gate makes the potential for victory here even more satisfying. Help out at Busby for Congress if you can.
