More Fakery From The Obama Administration

With thanks to Will, from this article by Andrew Malcolm in the LA Times:
P.S. Turns out now, those photos of Obama giving his 'I caught Bin Laden' speech were faked

Could the Obama White House communications folks have found anything else to step in over the presentation this week of their boss and the dramatic recounting and re-recounting of the execution and really rapid remains disposal of Osama bin Laden?

It turns out now that all of the non-White House still photographs of the president's dramatic entrance down the hall into the East Room and the late Sunday evening speech itself were faked.

They were not taken during the actual event, which was photographed only by official White House photographer Pete Souza during the live TV broadcast.

The widely distributed press photographs were, in fact, shot during a reenactment of the entrance, the firm presidential strides down the carpeted hall and the speaking by the president right after the real event...

These staged news photos were immediately flashed around the world for millions to see with varying captions about the president reading his statement for photographers, distinctions that may well have been lost in translations and publications.

It is a minor matter unless truth is a concern....
Read the rest HERE.

Perhaps staging photos is not of great significance. But why would the Obama administration bother doing so? And why can't the Obama administration be less concerned with burnishing Obama's image and more concerned with governing?

The faking of these photographs serves only to contribute to the growing conspiracy theories related to the death of Osama bin Laden.

  1. I've been saying that this whole thing is a sham to boost Obama's image for the election, so I'm not at all surprised. He's done this type of thing before-- remember the "applause" cue to his audience awhile back during one of his speeches after Fort Hood?

  2. Always, this is so weird because I remember seeing that speech and, afterwards, watching him walk and walk and walk back down the corridor through which he'd come to the dais and I thought "did they ever show Bush all that time walking? Why do they do that with Obama, what's interesting about watching him walk away for so long?"
    Now I know...all planned, all contrived..all for OBAMA.

    Because they don't know how to govern. Go with what you know

    Because when it comes to your modern day liberal, it's all about style, self love and looking great. Hard work and actual governing is left on the back burner and when an election looms.

    Mind you, it's not like they start working harder or something when an election looms, they just work harder at the facade of working hard.
