Iran Photoshopped Their Missiles

No, really.

As news spread across the world of Iran’s provocative missile tests, so did an image of four missiles heading skyward in unison. Unfortunately, it appeared to contain one too many missiles, a point that had not emerged before the photo appeared on the front pages of The Los Angeles Times, The Financial Times, The Chicago Tribune and several other newspapers as well as on BBC News, MSNBC, Yahoo! News, and many other major news Web sites.

Here's the picture in question:

In case you didn't see it, the two rightmost clouds are obviously a copy/paste, as are the two highest missiles.

Damned if I know why they did it, but it's the silliest damned thing I've seen this week.
