I guess I'm curious as to why this is an issue at all? In the final result, does it really matter? Thanks.

Is it me or does his right elbow overlap the hostages head in the foreground ?

This first picture hides the people behind the bushes.
The mans elbow against the mans head is an optical illusion. granted, it does look strange, but there is nothing out of place.
This is no different than a Man who was once a member ofthe KKK or the black Panthers later in life occupying a gov't office. Remember David Duke? Just because he didn't win, doesn't meant that someone with a background in militant politics is not someone who may occupy office.
What would it matter if this man was once part of that violent act. Ever think maybe he worked for the US back then also , and now it has come full circle, and there may be no war? There are numreous scenarios, but I feel there is nothing fake with that picture. Mistaken identity I could beleive, but no a doctored photo.
Besides, we need no 'reason' to go to war.

Or at least destroy anything nuclear they have.
