More Doubts and Skepticism Scattered Over the Liberation of Bernard Planche

Having published, a week earlier, the group photo of Bernard Planche standing amongst the U.S. soldiers who freed the French hostage, and that on its cover, Le Monde backtracks and sets Claire Guillot to pen an article putting into doubt just about everything concerning the liberation and questioning the reasons for the photo's presence (and very existence) — i.e., the dark, treacherous, unconfessed reasons — and even managing, in a final gesture, to brig up Abu Ghraib. (Why would those Yankee "liberators" — the word is set in quotation marks in the article (twice!), lending it an air of cynicism — take a group photo of themselves for any other reason than to use it as propaganda among the French, n'est-ce pas?)
