Reader Garik sends along this image, which has approximately 10,000 reblogs attached to it. Problem is, the image is totally, utterly false regarding Libya (he also notes that Yemen and Iran are also off). Here’s an image from Getty Images, shot by AFP photographer Pedro Ugarte, which is of a similar aerial angle as the central image. It’s of Tahrir Square. See the buildings? Yeah, they’re the same. Research is your friend. To Tumblr user -somethingspecial-, mind correcting this?
