Software could tell the authentisity of an image

“Using a new program to analyze images and videos for changes may reveal hidden terrorist messages.”

Ok, this is interesting in that someone has used clever ideas and neat technology to analyise the source and authentisity of an image, which could help decide debates about is it real, is it not real.  But sorry, it would be much more interesting if it did not mention Al Qaeda and concentrated on the fact that the process was in fact possible.  We are hit by a mountain of images on a daily basis which could be doctored to hide their true source or indeed include hidden messages and these are from all “sides” and across all media.  Lets try it against some government images.
