Hoax fools New Yorkers....

. First Post reports;

"Readers of the New York Times were treated to some startling news on Wednesday morning. A banner headline announced: "Iraq War Ends" This was accompanied by an admission from Condoleezza Rice (pictured) that the Bush administration had known all along that Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction. It was, of course, a hoax. But the 14-page "special edition", which was circulated free in Manhattan, was such a brilliant facsimile that many NYT readers were intially fooled, especially as it was backed it up by an equally convincing website."

If only it were true....
