Qana hoax - and the inability to call it one

Well, I'm ready to call it. I wasn't sure they would be dumb enough to try fraud in this day and age. Then again, I underestimated the MSM.

Do a Qana search on BBC and CNN for starts and read around. Not much there on any fraud, is there? Fold that into, as per the Wikipedia entry, the "protesteth,"
Three news agencies on Tuesday rejected challenges to the veracity of photographs of bodies taken in the aftermath of an Israeli airstrike in Lebanon, strongly denying that the images were staged.

Photographers from The Associated Press, Reuters and Agence France-Presse all covered rescue operations Sunday in Qana, where 56 Lebanese were killed. Many of their photos depicted rescue workers carrying dead children.
Now, here is the tough part. Ignore what bias you may have (NB, mine is to Israel) and visit and study the two entries from EU Referendum. Then the above LGF and Lord Misha's place.

Does your BS filter go off? Yes, people died. But not there. Not in the way Abdel Qadar says. Forget Lord Dark Helmet; girly Green Helmet is the villain in this movie.
