Definitely a media bug - although a minor one in a good article of major importance. A couple of Common Dreams readers mentioned the photo caption error in the comments section. One reader notes that the photo caption for the original story on the Inter Press Service website (from which the article was gleaned) reads: "The bulk of the U.S.’ 47,000 troops in Japan are based in Okinawa." I guess that should be the caption rather than "People stage a rally against a US military base on Japan’s Okinawa island, Kadena," since the photo seems to be a row of servicemen standing on a ship's deck.
