CNS News exposes false reporting and photo-shopped pictures by MoveOn.org to distort war news against American troops, Republicans and the war.

MoveOn.org has reached a new low in their publishing of photo-shopped pictures of British soldiers---showing them newly clad in American uniforms---to pass them off as American troops. Just when we thought they could not possibly get any lower, MoveOn's 30 second spot is used to emphasize to the world that 150,000 U.S. troops are "stuck in Iraq" and "won't be home this holiday season."

In the ad, MoveOn "echoes Democrats' calls for an exit plan from Iraq" and accuses Republicans of "failing to offer a plan to end the U.S. occupation 'of that country.'"

Since MoveOn's reportage does not meet any ethical standards and is used primarily to create false propaganda and misinformation to hoodoo the American people and the rest of the planet into buying into their anti-war assault on the Bush Administration, Republicans and American troops fighting the war against terror in the mid-east battlefront...., isn't it time for MoveOn.org to just move on....?

Take a look for yourself in Randy Hall's piece at cnsnews and in excerpts below. Lance at Red State Rant also gives an interesting take on MoveOn's slick trickery and misrepresentation in his posting Moveon.org lies and then covers up.

"MoveOn.org Restores Ad That Misidentifies 'US' Troops"

"After Cybercast News Service reported Wednesday that MoveOn.org had removed from its website a television advertisement that misrepresented a photograph of British soldiers as Americans, the liberal group restored the spot to its site. However, the group dropped an accompanying picture that had been altered to cover the fact that one of the soldiers in the ad was wearing shorts, which are not part of the American combat uniform.

As Cybercast News Service previously reported, the 30-second spot begins by stating: "Some folks won't be home this holiday season." The ad then pans across a group of soldiers getting military rations as the voiceover states that "150,000 American men and women are stuck in Iraq."

However, Todd Vician, a spokesman with the U.S. Defense Department, told Cybercast News Service after viewing the ad that none of the men featured in the photograph are wearing U.S. uniforms. "We don't have that style of desert camouflage," he said....

Late Wednesday afternoon, the ad, which a press release from MoveOn.org Political Action indicated "echoes Democrats' calls for an exit plan from Iraq" and attacks Republicans for "failing to offer a plan to end the U.S. occupation" of that country," vanished from the group's website. When the spot reappeared hours later, the site no longer contained a scroll of still shots from the advertisement, including the picture of the soldiers...."
