I believe Reuters is the agency that believes that "one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter."  This equation puts George Washington on a par with Arafat or bin Laden.  One who flies hijacked airplanes into buildings or blows up teenage girls in front of a disco is equal to another who fights the Hessians at Trenton.

Any picture is worth a thousand words....even these ones.  But the thousand words here aren't the ones Reuters intended, because one man's journalist is another man's enemy propagandist.
