On Reutersgate

Regarding Reutersgate, to repeat1 what I learned some time ago: When the Arabs start lying, it means we (the West) are winning. Here’s to more doctored photographs!

1. I wanted to use “reiterate” but I hate that word. The “re” refers to doing something again. But to “iterate” is to do something again. So what does reiterate, exactly etymologically, mean? To repeat something again (that is, repeat a repetition)? What if one wants to repeat something done only once so far?
