The benefits of the night shift … first and foremost I could care less who the liar is. If I catch it, I will report it. It just happens this time it’s Israel.
It was morning October 6 2012 when news broke that Israel had shot down a UAV / Drone over it’s territory. I saw this on Google news and clicked the link. Once on the page of timesofisrael.com I saw the photo of a drone in pieces posted along with the short story as it was breaking news. I thought to myself, wow, it doesn’t look like this drone was shot down.
I also noticed it was dark in the photo which makes this story all the more unbelievable. Why ? Because the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said this incident happened around 10:00 Am local time in the video below which I might add shows daylight.
Another strange thing about this photo is, It has since been scrubbed from the web, with the newly released video later on Oct. 6 2012 showing something being shot out of the sky [taking the photos place] to confirm the story.
After seeing the video released by the Israel Defense Forces I thought to myself, hey that’s not what you showed earlier on Oct. 6 2012. So I went looking for the photo. First I went back to timesofisrael.com and didn’t find the photo. Next I went to Google image search where I found the photo [the only photo] and where it is still posted on Scrape TV.
Scrape TV also has a link to the original story from earlier on October 6 2012, which now shows the newly released video and not the photo.
I then went back to timesofisrael.com and continued to look for the photo in question. I found it on this page -[ http://www.timesofisrael.com/palestinian-drone-crosses-deep-into-israel-says-palestinian-sources/ ] .
While it took some time to find the image [I have my ways], I doubt it will be on the timesofisrael.com site much longer.
What this shows you is that misinformation, disinformation, deception, propaganda and the scrubbing of the web is a daily thing especially when speaking of things of this nature. I bet you can’t find the photo today except here and maybe Scrape TV if they haven’t received a take down notice.
Here’s the video released that took the place of the propaganda photo Via the official YouTube page of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
