The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Death by "Quote Marks"

I think the photo editor manning the AP Middle East desk might be getting just a teensy bit overzealous with that dastardly quote key:

Members of Arab Jabour Awakening, a movement of 'concerned citizens' working with U.S. troops to provide security in the Sunni stronghold, direct three women to be searched in Arab Jabour, a suburb south of Baghdad, Iraq on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2007. In this ethnically mixed Sunni-Shiite area where several groups of Iraqi volunteers, called Concerned Citizens, have come forward to join U.S. troops and Iraqi forces in fighting the insurgency.

I've seen every possible level of doubt put on the story of the Anbar Awakening, but I don't know that it's really worth disputing whether these are "citizens," and whether or not they are really "concerned."
