This is so bizarre, I almost can’t believe it’s true. The SITE Intelligence Group (who monitors terrorist communications as a service) released a report that – allegedly – said the following image was created as part of a pro-terror video.

Media reports: “The SITE Intelligence Group said that the image, showing a ruined Capitol Building in Washington, was created by extremists as part of discussions about the feasibility of nuclear strikes against the US and Britain.” In reality, it’s a bit of concept art from the upcoming Fallout 3 – a game I’m quite looking forward to when it comes out this fall. (I loves me some post-apocalyptic entertainment media.) SITE’s response? An entirely unconvincing “Nuh-uh!

Here’s a tip, fellas – if someone makes claims about something you wrote, showing us what you wrote is the best way to undercut those claims. A “that’s not what we said in the original report which we aren’t going to show you” defense is not terribly convincing.
