Lasrever - The widespread "Al Qaeda Torture Manual" is fake

I saw the original pictures from this manual years ago! The drawings were from the Baathist Party during Saddam's reign. See the originals here:

Original site showing Baathist torture manual

Take note of this web page's last update (check the bottom of the page): January 20, 2003

This past year I saw the pictures changed and a lot of websites, including Smoking Gun, adopted the changed version (with the photo editing of "Al Qaeda torture manual" text written onto the pictures) as truth:

Al Qaeda torture manual, google image search

The Smoking Gun showing 'Al Qaeda torture manual' rather than pictures in their original form


Golem posted this disinformation here on Liveleak:

'the al-qaeda torture handbook, chamber, and victims'

When I commented on Golem's upload about the original drawings -- that they were from the Baathist Party and not 'Al Qaeda' -- and wrote the original website's URL Golem erased my comment

Pinero of Liveleak also posted this disinformation:

'Al-Qaeda Torture Drawings and Pictures'


My main question is: Who changed the context of where the pictures came from and why?
