Background information: rejoicing Iraqis and faked photographs

It's interesting that two separate cases of falsified news photographs should come to light within days of each other, and both of them photographs (purportedly at least) of the interaction between the invading armies and Iraqi citizens. To put this into perspective, I personally cannot remember seeing such manipulation of news photographs reported before, not during the 1980s, the 1990s or more recently.
