    Yes, it is. I think I agree with you.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    They originally published the cropped photo.
    The fact that the photo was cropped was discovered.
    Reuters apologized and pulled the cropped photo, replacing it with the one you see now.

    The fact that the guys were armed with Combat Knives is still a....... FACT.

    A .... FACT... that was hidden by the Reuters photo editor.

    Believing otherwise is sheer fiction.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    So what is this knife doing there? There is no blood on it.

    Little Green Footballs compared the Reuters photos to the original images published on the IHH website (IHH is the Hamas-linked charity group which organized the flotilla).

    Reuters cropped the photos to remove images of “peace” activists holding knives and standing over bleeding Israeli troops.

    Ed Barnes at Fox News has Reuters’ statement on the first photo:

    “The images in question were made available in Istanbul, and following normal editorial practice were prepared for dissemination which included cropping at the edges,” the news agency said in a statement. “When we realized that a dagger was inadvertently cropped from the images, Reuters immediately moved the original set as well.”

    Reuters has not responded to criticism over a second photo, from which they cropped a bleeding Israeli soldier, a knife, and a pool of blood on the ship’s rail.
    Translation: "We got caught red-handed supporting terrorists and trying to slime Israel."

    Not much of a story, unless you consider this was not one photo but at least two different photos which were cropped to hide the violence on the part of so-called "peace advocates."

    Or perhaps there's an obvious financial motive in pouring oil on the Arab/Israeli conflict. After all, Reuters sells newspapers, and a billion Muslims buy newspapers. Six million Jews, not so many.

    I'm getting kind of tired of people defending knife-wielding "peace activists."
