Row over altered US Army photo.
The Pentagon has become embroiled in a row after the US Army released a
photo of a general to the media which was found to have been digitally
Ann Dunwoody was shown in front of the US flag but it later emerged that
this background had been added.
The Associated Press (AP) news agency subsequently suspended the use of
US Department of Defense photos.
A Department of Defense spokeswoman insisted that the photo had not
violated army policy.
Ms Dunwoody, the highest ranking US female military officer, was
recently promoted to become a four-star general.
In an original photo of her, she appears to be sitting at a desk with a
bookshelf behind her.
