Egyptian paper doctors photo of Mubarak and Obama

By Michael Calderon

Al-Ahram, the state-run newspaper in Egypt, recently ran the above photo of  Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak leading President Obama and other world leaders during Middle East peace talks at the White House.

But that's not quite how the walk to the East Room played out. The BBC reports that Al-Ahram apparently had some fun with Photoshop, and placed the country's leader up front.

You can see the original Getty photo below.

Egyptian media has long faced government censorship, so it's not surprising the state-run newspaper would opt to place Mubarak ahead of the pack. News of the re-cut photo drew a swift rebuke from one of Egypt's leading opposition groups, the 6 April Youth Movement. "This is what the corrupt regime's media has been reduced to,"  a statement on the group's website said. The state-owned press had "crossed the line from being balanced and honest," the statement continued. But the specific reason for doctoring this photo is unclear, since Al-Ahram did not respond to the BBC's request for comment.

UPDATE:   (from additional Internet sources)
This all really could have turned out worst for all sides concerned if the public saw the true original photo.

If the citizens of the World knew that their leaders have always secretly belonged to the same CLUB.
It seems as if there has always been peace among the leaders of the World,  they get together in secret whenever possible to dance & sing club songs.  The image of discord & wars between them is to mislead the Sheeple of the World so they could enslave them for the SECRET Club's benefit.

A copy of the secret photo was secured by undercover operatives of the Looney Tunes Gang, said spokes person Porky Pig in a breaking press release.
