Was the Photographer One of the Hostage Takers?
This is Adem Ozkose.
He’s the journalist who took the photographs of the Peace Activists as they captured Israeli hostages. Reuters later altered the photographs to remove the Peace Activists weapons.
Could that possibly be him holding the bloody hostage by the neck while making the “We’re number one!” proclamation to the cameras? The picture is pretty poor resolution so it would be difficult to say with any certainty.
Normally I wouldn’t think too much about something so tenuous until I saw this video showing the aftermath of the incident…..
At about 0:27 we see what appears to be Adem Ozkose and he is wearing a black shirt or jacket like his blurry likeness in the hostage picture.
Could that be him participating in the hostage taking?
If that is him then how could he show up in one of his own pictures?
Is this too much of a stretch?
Update: (hat tip: wrenchwench) It seems the man in the hostage picture is not Adem Ozkose. At 1:50 of this video you can see clearer images of the man in the black jacket….
