Old Habits Die Hard

From Newsvine: Obama: Iranian missile tests call for more talks

The AP ran this story early yesterday morning about Iran's missile tests:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama says that Iran's missile tests highlight the need for tougher threats of economic sanctions as well as strong incentives to persuade Tehran to change its behavior.
Except that the original version broadcast by the AP had a subtle but important difference in the first sentence. See if you can spot it:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama says that Iran's missile tests highlight the need for tougher threats of economic sanctions as well as strong incentives to persuade Baghdad to change its behavior.
Oops.
