Photo Tricks Betray the 'Saddam' Psyop
Advertisements [?]
In a December 17th article entitled 'The Saddam Hussein Capture Hoax', Ernesto Cienfuego wrote:

"The CIA photograph..., clearly shows a tree full of ripe dates which in Iraq ripen in late July or early August and never in December. The picture also shows a rope with hanging meat for drying. Our Iraqi sources informed us that this occurs always in the summer and never in December."

That conclusion is dead wrong. In fact, that is the exact conclusion desired by the psyop team who constructed this piece of photo trickery. Take a look at the photo again. The dates are hanging into the picture way too deliberately. One clue was enough. Two like this was overkill.

A rat odor is wafting around again. Can you smell it?
