UK Indymedia Peddles Lies
Booby Traps Detonated by US Remote ControlsThe story has remained on their newswire for over 24 hours. Any number of other blogs and news sources, have confirmed the photograph used as 'evidence' is a (badly) Photoshopped and wholly doubtful fraud, no doubt aimed at discrediting the US.

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- An informed source said in Tehran on Tuesday that after terrorists' hideout in Iran's southeastern city of Zahedan was conquered, Iranian police discovered several US-made remote controlled detonators there.
Yet there it is, right there on UK Indymedia, known for supporting terrorists.
What a quality 'news source'. Come on 'Sam Wilson', we're all dying to hear your latest excuse.
Update: Wilson's latest excuse in comments:
I could have sworn you just evidenced your post with little green f***tards and onward christian soldiers.I could have chosen from hundreds of sites, however felt the sites with the scoop and up to date links, were the most appropriate.
Beyond that, Wilson has no actual argument of course.
Others tried pointing this out earlier on UK Indymedia, with comments on the post such as:
Charles Johnson and others debunked a crude Iranian PhotoShop purporting to show U.S. munitions being used to subvert the government of Iran over the weekend, it didn't keep the ever-gullible Indymedia UK from running the photo.and
Bloggers did a good job showing the PhotoShopping faults that Indymedia should have quickly and rather easily caught, but simply doing a Google image search should have quickly proven the rifle ammunition claim questionable.
O come on, this picture was proven as a fake by a number of people. It's all over the web, this sort of stuff makes IM look stoopidNaturally both comments were hidden, with the usual unbelieveable message that:
This posting has been hidden because it breaches the Indymedia UK (IMC UK) Editorial Guidelines..I'd love to know which "Editorial Guideline" prohibits pointing out that an article is a fraud.
Update: The whole post has been hidden - only after festering on the newswire for at least 48 hours. Such quality...
Remember, boys and girls, it's called the Nazimedia for a reason.
I could have sworn you just evidenced your post with little green f***tards and onward christian soldiers.
In particular a lot of recent posts concerning something called 'port scanning' and spy ware which confirm what a few people have been saying for some time about Indymedia loading spying software onto user computers while they are reading the site.
The massive, but unreported, 1990 change to the holocaust fable. Its been 17 years. Have you heard about it yet?
The HolyCo$t fable has a few math problems:
1948 (till 1990) Version of the fable:
Total number of Jews supposedly killed by the Nazis = 6,000,000
Total number supposedly killed at Auschwitz = 4,000,000
Number of Jews supposedly killed at Auschwitz = 3,500,000
Number of Jews supposedly killed outside of Auschwitz = 6,000,000 - 3,500,000 = 2,500,000
1990 (till present) Version of the fable:
Total number of Jews supposedly killed by the Nazis = 6,000,000
Total number supposedly killed at Auschwitz = 1,500,000
Number of Jews supposedly killed at Auschwitz = 1,000,000
Number of Jews supposedly killed outside of Auschwitz = 6,000,000 - 1,000,000 = 5,000,000
The problem is damn clear:
From 1948, till 1990, Jews claimed that 2,500,000 were killed outside of Auschwitz.
Since 1990, Jews have claimed that 5,000,000 were killed outside of Auschwitz.
Have Jews presented any evidence at all of the extra 2,500,000 "killings" outside of Auschwitz? Of course not.
This is all a result of their reducing the number killed at Auschwitz (by some 2.5 million), but refusing to reduce the overall 6,000,000 claimed Jew deaths.
Again, do Jews have any documentation at all, for these extra 2.5 million "murders" outside of Auschwitz? Or did they just make up the number, like they clearly made up the pre-1990, 4 million "murders" at Auschwitz, figure.
So are Jews NUTS, or just NOT very good at math.....
"Interesting that when the post was finaly hidden no notification to the lists was given."
" Now it is a hard and fast rule on Indymedia that when a moderator is hiding a post he or she must notify the public list with a reason why. The hidden page clearly shows scores of posts that have been hidden with no notificaion."
They're your posts, aren't they?
Give an honest answer on that, and then this one:
DO YOU SUPPORT A FULL DISCLOSURE OF THE REASONS THOSE POSTS WERE HIDDEN?
and I'll see what I can do. If you want to email the list and request full disclosure of the reasons, you clearly know the adress, and it may be the most effective way to address your complaint.
"perhaps the Little Brown (shirted) fucktards Spam Wilson"
Thanks for the invite - I don't have a brown shirt, and I'm not part of Arizona IMC.
Now back to the original post - Iranian disinformation is bad - identical USA disinformation is good.
Thats the indy media watch/lgf/onward christian soldiers line isn't it?
No Brown Shirt, eh? Coulda fooled me. Are you or are you not a part of the Nazimedia? Have you or have you not claimed that the Nazimedia is a "quality" news source? Have you or have you not spammed this place like an adolescent because of it's damning spotlight on the Nazimedia?
And why have you ignored the question concerning the rationale of two honest posts being hidden?
Are you and Bob Ness the best the Nazimedia has to offer? No wonder it's in it's death throes.
Yes that's right Roy, all from me. Nobody else ever complains about Indymedia except for me. I work 24/7 in a secret MI5 bunker assisted only by Mossad, posting to Indymedia UK. You've caught me, I admit everything, I am Sparticus.
In other news I'm pleased to see that the constant diet of "Jews are taking over the world" is getting the full reatment once again on the UK site with such delights as,
"The Israel Lobby and the Left: Uneasy Questions"
"Israel: State - Land - People"
"Power Of Canada's Zionist Lobby Grows"
Curious how this is of interest to a site dedicated to matters in the UK. But then we've all come to accept the UK newswire and its obsession with Jews by now.
You forgot to answer this one:
"DO YOU SUPPORT A FULL DISCLOSURE OF THE REASONS THOSE POSTS WERE HIDDEN?"
