internet hooliganism: The Female ISIS Suicide Bomber in the Bathtub Was Exactly None of Those Things

"The problem is that the woman that the Post confidently declared to be the “Paris suicide bomber” doesn’t appear to be her at all. That woman, pictured above, came forward today to say she is not Hasna Ait Boulahcen and has no connection to the group of people who carried out the Paris attacks. Instead, she says, her name is Nabila Bakkatha, she is from Morocco, and in an interview with CNN she alleges that the Daily Mail got duped into publishing her photo by an opportunistic ex-friend with a grudge.
“The photograph was taken by my friend, who sold it to a French journalist after the Paris attacks in revenge,” she tells CNN."
