This photo in the Iranian Republic News Agency report on Wednesday July 9, 2008, shows the same missile that appeared in a report in 2007.

Of course, Little Green Footballs started all of this.
Let’s hope that Charles Johnson gets some credit.

The New York Times is going to expose more on the bogus photos Iran released this on their missile tests.

Many of Iran’s claims related to its missile tests appears to be smoke and mirrors, the NEW YORK TIMES is planning to report on Saturday.

The missiles tested DID NOT not have 2,000-kilometer range; it was an older missile that was out of production, newsroom sources tell DRUDGE.

A video showed what appeared to be many missiles being fired is actually one missile, filmed from different angles.

NYT’s Bill Broad is planning to quote Pentagon officials and military insiders.

More… The Iranian regime is posting photoshopped photos in their own newspapers:

The circled photo posted at Fars News was photoshopped.
Charles Johnson discovered that it was a photoshopped picture on Wednesday night. He pointed it out in the photo with the red boxes on the lower left. The New York Times found the original photo with out the extra rocket in it.
