"On behalf of every Muslim I know...every Muslim watching...good riddance to Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi. Here is a man whose primary victims were Muslims, who was loathed by Muslims...The world is a a better place...Good riddance to this piece of human scum." - Mehdi Hasan on MSNBC, Columnist at Al Jazeera.
For the sixth time, Al Baghdadi is dead. But this time, there is an image Dan Scavino, assistant to Trump, posted on his Twitter Account which is mentioned in another Tweet by Pete Souza, former chief official white house photographer, who belives that it's fake: "The raid, as reported, took place at 3:30PM Washington time. The photo, as shown in the camera IPTC data, was taken at "17:05:24".", Mr. Souza says.
But what is IPTC data?
IPTC , is the meta data, which automatically appends to digital images files, by camera or mobile device which can be coordinates, device model, was the flash on, and etc... which can cause serious privacy problems. Medias use IPTC to protect images copyrights.
So let's check it out. I'm using an EXIF reader software,
imagemagic, which can be run using command below (EXIF and IPTC are different things but stored in same place anyway):
identify -verbose Desktop/EH46IIlWsAE9B0n.jpeg > output.txt
After reviewing the results, I found no meta data appended to the image file! But what happend to the EXIF data? "When location services are enabled, and you attach a photo in the composer, Twitter refers to the Exif data of the photo to show suggested locations.", Twitter Answered. "Twitter retains Exif data temporarily to process your photo. It is not available to those who view your photo on Twitter."
So, what is the date-time which Mr. Souza mentioned?
Until this moment I believe there is a mistake with Mr. Souza. Or he have a tool which NSA would like to have!
