ABSTRACT
The article discusses the concerns on the fake, misleading or meaningless photographs from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that are being distributed to picture editors at newspapers and magazines around the world. It provides examples of such photographs including one which showed a piece of military equipment placed on a damaged stone wall, published in "The New York Times" and "Time." Terrorists and insurgents in Iraq also manipulate images for their own uses. It cites the challenge faced by journalists and picture editors when accounts of a single incident differ dramatically.
