P.S. Turns out now, those photos of Obama giving his 'I caught Bin Laden' speech were fakedRead the rest HERE.
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....
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.
