AP Frets Over IDF Fauxtography?

We see photos day after day from Gaza and the West Bank blatantly staged by Palestinian stringers, and wire services put them up without question.

Yet in this caption, AP essentially declares says it can't independently verify the pics. Check out the last part of the caption in capitals.

Okay, it's a standard disclaimer for images that weren't produced by the wire service.

I think AP needs a disclaimer for images produced by Palestinian stringers too. Trust-but-verify works both ways.
