Posing for the cameras

We’ve been treated to a lot of footage from Baghdad of civilians supposedly injured by Coalition attacks. Well, Blogs of War links to an article and photos that purport to show that the same two kids in different photos swap a bandage and dressing. One minute he’s badly injured, the next minute he’s miraculously well, although his buddy has the exact same wounds.

But Saddam would never stoop to using kids as propaganda, would he? Just like he wouldn’t use women and children to shield the movement of his troops or station military targets in schools, hospitals, and mosques.
