Skip to comments.Carney: Fallen SEALS photo was controlled release
Posted on 08/10/2011 11:23:10 AM PDT by Nachum
When the coffins of the fallen Navy SEALS came back to US soil, the Pentagon and the White House closed the event to the press.That's understandable. After all, the Bush administration made similar restrictions for such ceremonies, although Obama overturned the policy.The press complied as well, but when the White House released a photo yesterday of President Obama saluting the coffins at the ceremony, they raised their eyebrows.When Associated Press reporter Ben Feller asked about the photo today at the White House Press briefing, Carney answered:

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“The reason we were able to release a photo, is that it was carefully done so that none of the transfer cases that contained remains were in the picture . . . we were able put those restrictions and control the White House photographer so that the photograph that we released does not cause any of those problems.”
propping up the dead for a photo op
more like photo evidence for his pals in the middle east
this was retribution. a setup most definitely.
So, it was a politically motivated release. Shocker.
Only in this regime would the caskets of the fallen soldiers be seen as “problems”.
Maybe this is my own version of revisionist history but I thought that President Bush was known to quite frequently and secretly show up at the arrivals of our fallen servicemen, and none of which was used a photo op...
with this administration, everything is a controlled release
Look for these images to be used to bolster obama as an “ANTIWAR” candidate who will bring the troops home,
uh, in his next term
That is a salute?! Looks more like a “Heil Hitler”.
This has the stench of being nothing more than a politial photo opportunity for a failed and poll-slipping president.
For news about “uncontrolled release”, please search for Barney Frank.
Well, now we know why the Prince lifted the ban on photographing our dead warriors as they return home in caskets. So that he might control photo-ops for his sorry ass. Patooey!
EVERYTHING is a photo op for that phony in the White House.
So they snapped a pic of Obama saluting a bunch of empty coffins?
I’d be curious to know what those freepers yesterday who were willing to give him the benefit of the doubt about this-and even got a little snippy about it-think as this progresses?
Nah, I heard that was Barney’s gerbil.
Post of the Day.
(If anyone missed those two threads yesterday, please - do a search for them. Hilarious!)
I am glad I am not the only one who saw that similarity.
What he described is not a reason for releasing a photo -- it is an attempted justification for having released a photo.
