Islamic Hostage Barbie Hoax
The Islamic Hostage Barbie Hoax as Instapundit
has dubbed it (i.e. that hoax photo of a captured U.S. soldier
) is now all over the blogosphere. It seems quite clear that it was an action figure in the photo, not an American soldier. But it's not clear to me where this photo originally came from. Where is this mysterious Islamic website that the picture was posted on? If we knew that it would be a lot easier to tell if it was meant as a joke, or as a serious (though absurd) threat.
Anyway, as I've been browsing the web I've already come across a lot of photo parodies of the hoax. Here are a few that I've found so far:
From The Templar Pundit
, Hostage Barbie:
, Team America:
From Power Line
, Elmo Captured:
And from Ludicrosity
, Rumsfeld Decides:
