30. I don't buy this as real for this one obvious reason
Edited on Thu Apr-08-04 02:54 PM by Mike Daniels
Two kids, one of whom had a dad killed and a sister knocked up are going to allow a US military person stand anywhere close to them and allow their picture to be taken? Right!!

If anything is suspect it's the writing on the paper especially as everything is perfectly centered on the page including the word "sister" below all of the other lines.

The picture may be real but I seriously doubt the writing was the original message.

However, I'm not sure based on what's listed on the thread if CAIR is are complaining that this was a real picture in it's entirety (which I don't think it is based on my observation) or are they are complaining over a tasteless message that's out of context in relation to a benign picture (which I can understand).
