Congressional Candidate Slams Press Coverage of Iraq--With Bogus Photo

Howard Kaloogian (R) has posted this photograph on his campaign website with the following caption:

"We took this photo of dowtown Baghdad while we were in Iraq. Iraq (including Baghdad) is much more calm and stable than what many people believe it to be. But, each day the news media finds any violence occurring in the country and screams and shouts about it - in part because many journalists are opposed to the U.S. effort to fight terrorism."
Problem is they had to go to Turkey to take the photograph. Observant bloggers caught the deception.
