Tim Blair fisks Martin Chulov

After Australia's Foreign Minister, Alexander Downer dared – yes, how did he managed to have the nerve to doubt the superior righteousness, integrity and professionalism of journalists providing Hizballah propaganda unbiased information to the sitting ducks the public? – to doubt mainstream media’s coverage of The Mysterious Case of the Exploding Ambulance, Tim Blair fisks Chulov’s changed story, after bloggers as Zombietime completely ripped it to – very tiny – pieces. He says he still stands for his original story.

One of Blair’s readers, Bonjour Triteness, puts it better:
* The “first ambulance”, no. 782, was speeding in a convoy AND stationary;
* The six people on board the convoy were all severely injured except Shalin the driver AND only two were severely injured;
* Shalin was protected by the driver’s canopy AND by the vehicle’s rear ramp;
* The ambulance/convoy was struck by a rocket/s AND missile/s fired by an Apache helicopter that was also a drone;
* The missile pierced the centre of the red cross on ambulance 782 AND “an explosion thundered” into the ambulance;
* Shalin “remembers nothing” after the flash-bang-crunch of the crash AND he remembers that “then there was a battle for the next hour” and “we hid in a building convinced we were going to die”.

Read it all. Blair writes a lot better than me...
