More Photographic Dishonesty from President Bush

In the most famous picture from his trip to Baghdad, President Bush had himself artfully photographed to look like he was serving turkey to the troops.1 The image was emblazoned on front pages throughout the country - and now appears to be an entirely false depiction.

According to the Washington Post, Bush was actually holding "a decoration, not a serving plate."2 In other words, he was holding a prop, not real food, and thus only pretending for the cameras to be serving up the holiday meal.
