Skip to comments.Pic of Obama's speech was staged
Posted on 05/04/2011 4:34:12 PM PDT by ColdOne
The photos are now widespread online and in newspapers, images of a confident President Obama striding toward the camera to announce the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.
Not so widespread, however, is the news that the photos werent from Obamas actual history-making speech. According to a Reuters blog post, the photos were taken after Obamas actual announcement, during a brief reenactment minutes later.
The reenactment isnt the only way the administration has edited its media rollout of bin Ladens death. In a widely used photo of Obama and his national security team in the Situation Room, what appears to be a picture near Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is blurred. The text below photo says the document is classified.

Everything about him is staged...
This entire presidency is staged.
Pinch me, I need to wake up from this nightmare.
Can’t wait for this loser to boast about his divinity on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. /s
lol..what a ham. I read here yesterday that Penetta really gave the ok because O could not make up his mind.
It looked staged
With the staged pictures after the speech, and the announcement of speech and teleprompter coaches, Barry’s Presidency sounds and looks more and more like the plot from “The King’s Speech”.
I’m sure they were getting audio transmissions of the various elements monitoring, supporting, etc., however.
I’m not sure why, but Panetta seems to be going out of his way to tank Barry’s version of events. I really do think that Panetta overruled Obama, Obama’s staff agree, and now there is a power struggle within the President’s own cabinet.
The way the stories keep changing, I’m not sure they even have photos of bin laden’s body.
So, they were all staring at a radio in the photo?
Bush kept us safe.
Obama...Not so safe.
Will the gap be treated like nixons famous missing tape scenario. I doubt it. The more that comes out the stranger the story becomes. I think he’ s gone due to the courage of our seals and their desire for justice and finality for the vivtimss of 9/11.
Little credit should go to O pretend to be a Leader.
"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."
"We had some observation of the approach there, but we did not have direct flow of information as to the actual conduct of the operation itself as they were going through the compound."
Can you imagine if Obama had a direct feed from the battle? He would be giving orders, countermanding them, hemming and hawing, asking for some time to leave and ponder things, second guessing the troops. It's a damn good thing they were cut off. It's bad enough the control of the raid made me remember the micromanagement of Viet Nam.
Why the heck was this type of thing necessary? I feel like I am going more and more insane every day....will this nightmare ever end?
Just like our previous pervert-in-chief Clinton having small flags laid on the ground deliberately in front of tombstones so he could solemnly put them upright, and when he "found" stones on the beach at Normonday that were planted there by his minions. What is there about the dummycrats that everything is either pre-written, staged, or rehearsed instead of from the heart?
This eight-ball living in our White House is helpless unless everything is pre-written or staged.
... you're union green job is right around the corner, surrender your Rights here first.
Clinton was smart enough and aloof enough to pull off his own staged moments. Obama is rigid and not very bright, so cracks are starting to form in his ‘inner circle’, who see a not very bright and very narcissistic man who is unable to make critical decisions, at the risk of national security.
His entire presidency is staged...
