The New York Times Wrong Again


This is pathetic.

Whatever is happening in the U.S. shadow war in Pakistan it is clear that this photo gets it all wrong.

What is identified as the "remains of a missile" is quite clearly an artillery shell. Here's a 155mm round for comparison.

The warheads of missiles do not typically survive impact. Some tail pieces might. Also notice how the old man and young boy are featured in the shot. Accidental or are they implicated targets?

Bad, bad deal all around.
