Photo of Irania Missle Launch AlteredAccording to The Times, AFP reportedly obtained the photo from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's media Web site, Sepah News, on Wednesday. The photo ran on the covers of major media outlets around the world before anyone noticed the apparent error.
On Thursday The Associated Press released a photo from Sepah News' site that appeared almost identical, but with only three missiles shown, The Times reported. AFP retracted the four-missile version of the photo on Thursday, claiming it had been altered by Iranian State Media.
In a statement, AFP said that the missile "has apparently been added in digital retouch to cover a grounded missile that may have failed during the test."

Yep, one was a dud and there's a dead photo-shopper in Tehran.

I can't fathom why this is newsworthy. What's an extra missile when they've already launched a volley?

Maybe not. Apparently the Washington Post published this photo in 2006. But Iran does possess Photoshop, and it's willing to use it!In judging a two-person singing contest, never award the prize to the second soprano having heard only the first.
