Monday, February 07, 2005 "In the days immediately following Iraq's historic election, two videotapes from 'insurgent' groups were distributed to the news media. One purported to show an American soldier being held hostage. The second purported to show that a British C-130 transport aircraft, which crashed on election day, had been shot down by a surface-to-air missile.

The 'American soldier' was Cody, a G.I. Joe action figure. This is obvious from the picture, but the Associated Press and CNN bit hard."
