When propaganda goes wrong.....

...the video the Israeli military didn't want the world to see.

he Israeli army has expressed a note of contrition after a television station aired a videotape showing an army assault on a Palestinian home in which a mother of five children died.

When CBC News spoke with Ismail Hawarjeh at Bethlehem's hospital earlier this month, there was no way to verify the story he told about how his wife had died, until Israel's Channel 2 broacast the tape last weekend.

I'm confused. This story is 4 years old. Why do you guys have it up now? What am I missing?

As a reminder that despite the hullabaloo about Hizbollah's PR campaings, they are not the only ones undertaking 'imbedded' news reports. I think the Israelis would've improved theirs in the passing of time, no?
