Staged photo? What the hell were those people watching so intently?

What? You mean to tell me the Democrats MISLEAD us???? How can it BE???

Staged photo? What the hell were those people watching so intently?: "

You’ve probably seen this photo of the President and his national security staff watching the “live video feed” of the Osama Bin Laden raid. Oopsie! Now it turns out there was no live video feed, which gives rise to the obvious question, was there a director standing just off camera saying, “OK, now everyone look really tense.”

The Telegraph UK did the work the American media couldn’t be bothered with:

Leon Panetta, director of the CIA, revealed there was a 25 minute blackout during which the live feed from cameras mounted on the helmets of the US special forces was cut off.

A photograph released by the White House appeared to show the President and his aides in the situation room watching the action as it unfolded. In fact they had little knowledge of what was happening in the compound.

Mr Panetta said: “Once those teams went into the compound I can tell you that there was a time period of almost 20 or 25 minutes where we really didn’t know just exactly what was going on. And there were some very tense moments as we were waiting for information.

So strong. So reassuring. So noble. So 100% staged.

Are we being paranoid right wing bloggers eagerly making up nonsense about the Obama admnistration? Hardly. The International Business Times reports that other photos of the noble Commander In Chief were faked during the aftermath of the Osama raid:

The White House hotly debated whether to release photos of Osama Bin Laden after Sunday’s raid on his Pakistan compound, but when it came to the President’s own photos, there was only one way to go: staged.

While the photo that ran on many newspapers and websites the next morning appeared as if it were taken during Obama’s address to the nation the night before, it was actually the result of an elaborate post-speech production.

“As President Obama continued his nine-minute address in front of just one main network camera, the photographers were held outside the room by staff and asked to remain completely silent,” Reuters photographer Jason Reed explained in his blog.

“Once Obama was off the air, we were escorted in front of that teleprompter and the President then re-enacted the walk-out and first 30 seconds of the statement for us.”

Determining what’s real and what’s not becomes more difficult each day with this administration.

The photos may not be real, but the picture is becoming increasingly clearer.
