Default NBC catches Hezbollah U.S. currency counterfeiting operation on tape, but cluelessly misses it.

<center><img src="http://www.users.qwest.net/~brianacuff/images/counter.gif"></center><p>
There is no commentary on the uncut sheets in the report.

<blockquote>"NBC Nightly News' Richard Engel was on location in Sidon, Lebanon where he reported that 'the financial district' was hit by Israeli missles.

Scattered among the debris were countless sheets of uncut $100 US bills.
</blockquote>

So what should the U.S. response be, when a major element of a foreign government is counterfeiting U.S. currency?<ul><li><a href="http://video.msn.com/v/us/msnbc.htm?g=297BEA10-6E1B-4F94-825C-F908472E48ED&amp;f=00&amp;fg=copy">At 1:07 into the 2:20 segment.</a></li></ul>

Default The professional journalist must have been out sick for that j-school training on "reporting".

&lt;Sorry, had to drag the other thread into this.&gt;

Default Looks like they did.

Note that this "financial center" would be one of the "civilian targets" so many have been whining about the IAF striking.

Default Newsflash: self-important media critic cluelessly mistakes wallpaper for counterfeit bills.
