Iran gets caught photoshopping, again

The country of Iran recently held elections that many are saying were rigged and that their votes did not count. The current winner and previous term president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who acts more as a dictator than a freely elected politician has been brought to Internet justice with the photoshopped picture below.

What you clearly see is that someone in Ahmadinejad's regime altered the picture below to make a crowd supporting the outcome look much larger thus showing greater support for his following.

This is not the first time Ahmadinejad has been caught Photoshopping either. In July of 2008 a missile test in Iran was Photoshopped to show that four missiles were successfully launched when it was actually three or possibly two missiles.

It's a sad state of affairs for Iran that it must go to these lengths to try and persuade the world that this was a true election. Despite the fact that millions of votes were supposedly counted in two hours and a fake photo showing support of the "winner" are signs of forgery the people of Iran are the ones who lost the most.
