2. Iran's phantom fourth missile
North Korea isn't the only member of the "Axis of Evil" to touch up its photos. In 2008, Agence France-Presse released a photo, issued by Iran, of a salvo of four missiles being test-launched by the Revolutionary Guard. But sharp-eyed newshounds noticed that two of the rockets and their exhaust trails looked suspiciously similar. Upon further inspection – and when another photo of the same event came to light – it became clear that Iran had added an extra rocket and exhaust to cover up an apparently failed launch. AFP retracted the photo.
