Call me a cynic, but...

The Plain Dealer has done it again. Today's paper featured a picture of a "disheveled" woman in Lebanon, near Beirut, talking on a cell phone in the midst of bomb damage.

Right.

Looks like a staged photo op to me. Virtually guaranteeing that her sympathetic picture will be placed on the front page, she is a hottie, dressed in a tank top. Her hair looks to be mussed for maximum effect, there's an artistic-looking dirt smear on the forearm facing the photographer, and she's wearing very large sunglasses, which also have the effect of making it difficult to identify her.

But don't take my word for it. Here's the link.

The photographer was Hussein Malla, of Associated Press. Does anyone have an information about his background and sympathies?
