Drudge Report ‘Terrorists Have Won’ Photo is from 2007
Drudge Report has been pushing the latest round of TSA scare stories hard (and often linking to Alex Jones conspiracy sites as sources), and right now he’s running this picture with the headline, “The Terrorists Have Won.”
Only problem: if the terrorists did win, it must have happened in September 2007 — when this picture was taken by Dean Shaddock and posted at Flickr.
I remembered this because I posted the image at LGF in 2007, and titled it “Homeland Absurdity.”
And it seems a little, uh, deceptive to try to portray this as a new picture to advance the TSA scare.
