THE POST-MODERN MIRROR OF THE TRUTH
Basra or Birmingham, it's all the same truth according to the Editor of the UK Daily Mirror, when it was established the truck shown in his photographs of alleged mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners had never left Britain.
There were immediate calls in Parliament for Piers Morgan, the editor of The Daily Mirror, to resign and for the paper to publish a front-page apology. Mr. Ingram said "those involved" in faking the photos "may have committed criminal offenses under military laws."
Can I play too, Piers?
Your appalling lies put the lives of your troops in danger, which demonstrates a willingness kill. Isn't that near enough to murder, and shouldn't you go to gaol for it?
In the US, too, the bottom feeders of the media are sucking up some filth:
Meanwhile, a US newspaper apologised yesterday for printing a hoax photo of American soldiers raping Iraqi women.
And Saddam Hussein is to file a suit for war crimes against Britain at the International Criminal Court. That's one place you won't find these criminal editors.
