Stop me if you've heard this one before...
Whether Al Quada is getting desperate for good press or a 'fun-with-photoshop' type is having a good time is IRRELEVANT, though it makes for good speculation. The media should not be reporting hoaxes, no matter who the perpetrators are!! The National Guard memos and the GI Joe photo aren't even that professional.
The always hilarious Jonah Goldberg fires back with this volley (from the Corner):
If reports are true and the terrorists have murdered one of our dolls, we must stand firm. We will destroy ten of their dolls. We will smash their rock-em-sock-em robots. And we will leave the lids of their Play-dough until it grows dry and flaky!
We cannot tolerate this aggression.
Also, speaking of fun-with-photoshop, here's Kerry on the Meet the Press talk about our captured hero.
