Can anyone put me onto the story about Jose Padilla's photo being "swarthied up" [skin tone darkened] in the papers recently? You can see the original at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jose_Padilla

ABC News used the darkened version on their World News Tonight piece on him.

Thanks. The news story is but a few days old, but I can't source it. I'd like to have backup when I ask ABC WTF.

ABC news website keeps crashing firefox on me, because I have a flash block extension for the damn dial-up. Rolling Stone webite does that too. Thread drift I know, but I can't be much help finding a pic.

I could never hope to get ABC's pic, I have no skills. I'd be happy to have the source of the news story, and let ABC do a side by side...

Couldn't find any information that links to ABC News but you say that the story says the photo of padilla was deliberately darkened? Weird, but I did find a couple of padilla's of different shades,
