It's amazing what you can do with Photoshop isn't it?

It's real. Here's the Yahoo News link.

It's amazing what you can do with an unwillingness to believe facts that contradict your pre-conceptions isn't it?

I spent some time on Google Earth trying to find the neighbourhood that your photo shows. I've have not found it, could you please share the Latitude & Longitude with us?

My understanding is that it is the Harat Hurayk neighborhood in the southern suburbs of the city - and that Google Earth doesn't have real time updates.

This photo is from GeoEye originally.

'Bud' may have thought this was the discredited Reuters photo with photoshopped smoke. It isn't.
