This story Is quite interesting. We are being told that there’s loads of good news in Iraq, it just doesn’t get reported. To prove it, Republican Congressional Candidate Howard Kaloogian published this picture (below) which he “took himself” which shows how calm and safe Bagdad is. Unfortunately, you can’t walk around Bagdahd in western clothes, nor wear revealing clothes (see the woman in the left)… turns out this picture is in Istanbul. He didn’t take the photo, and in fact it was taken from a travel blog.
It seems people are not built to mind being lied too: Even when we find out, we don’t mind. We just care when lies are against our interest. Oh well. I think integrity might just turn out to be important in the long run. And it’s the long run we have to live in.
