AP World Photos is re-running the photo of Rachel Corrie with a new, updated caption

See for yourself.

"This is a February 15, 2003 file picture of Rachel Corrie, 23, from Olympia, Washington, a member of the 'International Solidarity Movement' burning a handmade U.S. flag during a rally in the southern Gaza Strip (news - web sites) town of Rafah. Corrie was run over and crushed to death by an Israeli army bulldozer Sunday, March 16, 2003 while she was trying to stop it from tearing down a building in the Rafah refugee camp, witnesses said. Israel's military prosecutor has exonerated Israeli soldiers in the death of Corrie, the army said Thursday, refuting eyewitness testimony that the woman was in the line of sight of the bulldozer driver who ran her down."

I guess the driver wasn't an "eyewitness" after all. But doesn't that just go to prove the IDF is right? See story below.
