Doctored photo of Barack Obama and Hosni Mubarak

I know this came out last Friday, but given I have been working at the Liberal Democrats conference in Liverpool I am only writing about this now.

Once again thanks to a blogger, Wael Khalil, the truth came out and fraud exposed.

Recently Egyptian President was on a visit to the USA, a picture was taken at the White House.

However, the Egyptian State newspaper Al-Ahram doctored the photo to show the Egyptian President leading the delegation of Barack Obama, Binyamin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas walking down the red carpet.

Whereas it was Barack Obama leading the group.

I think it looks really obvious but that didn't stop Al-Ahram doing it.

The fact that the elections are looming shows the low level the state run newspaper is prepared to stoop to to hood wink the Egyptian readers.

Hopefully this appalling story will shift a few more towards the independent newspapers in Egypt.
