Picture of U.S.
Soldier in Iraq Shaking Hands With Senator Hillary Clinton--But Not
Summary of the eRumor The eRumor includes a
picture of a U.S. soldier shaking hands with Senator Hillary
He is also crossing the fingers of his left hand, which the email
says is a soldier's sign for coercion.
This eRumor started circulating
shortly after Senator Clinton made a Thanksgiving visit to the
soldiers in Iraq in 2003.
There was a lot of speculation about what the picture really meant.
