[casi] Lovely Weapon of Mass Delusion courtesy of Reuters

While looking at some stories of mass graves at Najaf I was immediately struck by this photo.  It 
doesnt really have much bearing on how accurate or not some of the claims of mass graves are, but 
interesting to observe the level of casual deceit that is now endemic in the major press agencies 
at all levels

With caption "Still blindfolded, the skeleton of an execution victim is mute testimony to Saddam's 
purges. The Najaf site has yielded the remains of at least 20 people. -- REUTERS"

Given the very fresh and clean nature of the blindfold after 12 years underground, not to mention 
the impeccable arrangement of clothing and bones its not hard to spot an obviously staged photo.

Welcome to a the world of free and open press, Iraq!
