North Korea Restores Order to Kim Funeral With Photoshop

Editors note:

Interesting how closely the west is watching N. Korea. I don't know that I buy

The funeral procession for Kim Jong-Il was carried out with military precision and when a handful of dawdlers messed up those regimented lines, they were eliminated. From the photo, that is.

A photo released by the North Korea's state news agency and transmitted by the Germany-based European Pressphoto Agency is slightly different from a photo taken at nearly the identical moment and released by Japanese agency Kyodo News.

The Japanese picture captured a half-dozen men near a camera on a tripod lingering behind the line of mourners on the left side of the boulevard as the motorcade passed by.

In the photo by the North Korean Central News Agency, those men, their camera and their footprints have been digitally removed, restoring absolute order to the crowds lining the boulevard as the cortege passed by.

The alterations were discovered by the New York Times with the help of digital forensics expert Hany Farid of Dartmouth College.

According to recent news from North Korea - “Winning against 70 American soldiers single-handed was comrade General Kim Jong Eun’s greatest victory.”  - http://www.dailynk.com/english/read.php?cataId=nk01500&num=8592 - I'm not sure Pyongyang's 'Fatboy' could fight off 70 balloons!

Photochopped crowds mourning the demise of respected and beloved 'Dear Leader' are the embodiment of the Juche idea!
