This is almost too good to be true: There’s a Reuters News Photo which shows protesters at a demonstration in Dhaka. The photo includes a Bin Laden Poster where you can see Sesame character “Bert” just besides Bin Laden. Quite a bit discussion on this is on Lindqvist.com and at Slashdot. Also, in a FoxNews article, Reuters and AP claim that the relevant photos were not doctored. The most plausible explanation for this so far is that a Google image search for “bin laden” turns up a doctored photo showing Bert and Bin Laden on the very first page of search results, and that these photos were used to quickly build the poster. (Of course, all this could still be a hoax…)
