When a Picture Is Worth Infinite Words...

...Because the words in the caption are worthless.

I'm referring to this picture from the IDF, published by the AP.

The caption is "In this picture released by the Israeli Defense Forces, an Israeli bulldozer destroys a Hezbollah bunker in southern Lebanon Sunday, Aug. 27, 2006. (AP Photo/Israel Defense Forces)."

If you're like me (not particularly eagle-eyed), you are probably wondering what the big deal is. The answer is off in the distance, on the left side of the photo. Apparently that particular Hezbollah base had a friendly neighbor...

The point is - WHY ISN'T THIS IN THE F-----G AP CAPTION?!? Did no one in AP notice, or was it a deliberate omission? In other words, incompetence or dishonesty?
