For those of you that don’t live in the UK, the Daily Mail is a revolting right-wing newspaper that shames Britain with its existence.

But today it’s done itself proud. It’s posted a piece of Fallout 3 concept art on its website and claimed the image of a ruined Washington DC has been put together by al-Qaeda.

The picture was posted on an extremist website, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, and has also been picked up by Australian outlet News.com.au.

Please read that Mail piece.

“Washington is laid to waste,” said Barry Wigmore, writing for the paper. “The Capitol is a blackened, smoking ruin. The White House has been razed. Countless thousands are dead.

“This is the apocalyptic scene terrorists hope to create if they ever get their hands on a nuclear bomb.”

“The computer-generated image below was posted on an Islamic extremists’ website yesterday.”

Beyond. Belief. Barry: you stain us all.
