"Clarifying" The Story

Evidence is creeping out from the Israeli attack on the Gaza
flotilla that flatly contradicts the storyline presented by Israel,
which has confiscated all passengers' cameras and phones, banned all
media coverage and otherwise sought to control the story. Among the
evidence: activists' reports of beatings and abuse, an IDF admission
they doctored video in the name of
"clarification," and autopsy results that reflect a shoot-to-kill
policy. This is painful. More here.

"So to clarify: the audio was edited down to cut out periods of
silence over the radio as well as incomprehensible comments so as to
make it easier for people to listen to the exchange." - IDF press
