    you would think they would at least try to get the right name of the picture before writing the headline or at least read their own story and realize that they id'd it correctly in the article and they should have titled it right.

    Why is 'Buddy Jesus' in Iraq?

    October 2, 2006
    BY QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA

    BAGHDAD, Iraq -- Iraqi troops backed by American military advisers arrested a suspected Shiite militiaman Saturday, but a gunbattle at his house left a woman and a girl dead, Iraqi police said.

    Afterward, angry men at the scene held up a color photo of a smiling, winking Jesus giving a "thumbs up" that they said was left by troops at the raided house -- an allegation denied by U.S. and Iraqi officials.

    The photo, known as the "Buddy Christ," is from the movie "Dogma," a 1999 religious satire in which "Buddy Christ" is part of a church campaign to improve Jesus' image.

    U.S. military spokesman Lt. Col. Barry Johnson said the photo was a ''rather ridiculous attempt'' to discredit the raid. It was unclear how it ended up at the site in Baghdad's Shiite stronghold of Sadr City .
