Magic Bullets Discovered in Sadr City by AFP Photographer
Sometimes the propaganda is so obvious it’s almost funny.
An elderly Iraqi woman shows two bullets which she says hit her house following an early coalition forces raid in the predominantly Shiite Baghdad suburb of Sadr City. At least 175 people were slaughtered on Tuesday and more than 200 wounded when four suicide truck bombs targeted people from an ancient religious sect in northern Iraq, officials said.

To make it even tastier, there’s another one from July 10, 2007, apparently featuring the same woman, holding another unfired round:

Several LGF readers think the second photo may show the steel core of a fired .50 caliber round; but it’s doubtful that it hit anything.
