Iran Fakes Missile Launch Picture After Misfire

More Muslim hubris from Iran. Via Iran Fakes Missile Launch Picture After Misfire:

A picture from the Iranian news website Jamejam clearly shows three airborne missiles and one that has failed to take off. But a second image released by the PR arm of the Revolutionary Guard seems to have digitally wiped away the embarrassing dud, replacing it with a fourth successful launch, complete with billowing clouds of exhaust and desert dust.

Mark Fitzpatrick, Senior Fellow at the International Institute of Strategic Studies, said, "It's ironic - Iran launches these missile tests to demonstrate might, and instead what they demonstrate is foolishness."

"They come across as amateurs by doctoring it. It's laughable."
