Carney: Fallen SEALS photo was controlled release
Washington Examiner ^ | 8/10/11 | Charlie Spiering

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 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.”

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

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!

Totally incoherent.

What he described is not a reason for releasing a photo -- it is an attempted justification for having released a photo.

“Controlled Release”????

Is that like the Feds who ‘manage’ “Controlled Burns” in our National Forests here in the West? We had 4 days of smokeover here east of Reno when they started a burn near Porterville in Calif a couple of weeks ago.

Hmmm, no flag draped coffins in that photo. Could it be that the White House believes this study is accurate?

No, it's not understandable. Obama and Biden accused President Bush of trying to hide the terrible human cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with his policy...except it was a policy established in 1991.

If they really meant it and weren't just scoring electoral points, they'd continue to allow reporters.

They need to tell us again...’Controlled release’ of who/what?

They worked up a dramatic photo of who? Our president. This wasn’t supposed to be about him. That is just wrong. I could say so much more, but I won’t. God bless our soldiers and their families, and may God be with them.

Tha man has never served a day in the military, but it would seem like his observations of real military men like the Marines who salute him every time he loads up to go on vacation would have given him some idea of how it is done.

Irregardless of this he should have been standing like the rest of those in the picture, with his hand over his heart.

IMO he doesnt deserve to be giving a salute to these men, who died honorably in battle.

The picture's fuzzy enough that you can't see the booger Zero just hauled out of his nose with his thumb.

Why is the apparent military man on the left not saluting? Or is that a chauffer's hat he's wearing? Yes, that'd be the company Barackalypse Now would prefer.

The others to 0Bambi's left were simply simultaneously answering the question, "Which way did the ice cream guy go?" and pointing to their left.

With this level of control, how do we know there were any "transfer cases" to be saluted? Could the White Hut have just staged the whole thing with this amount of "evidence?" This clearly is their best photo for their purposes. What lame idiot couldn't have gotten a better shot? Surely their radical Left friends appreciate a little "taqqiyah" for the good of their cause! The WH language would seem to protest too much.

Was anyone drawn to the Hindenburg disaster story by a picture of a guy holding a microphone at the site just moments before the Zeppelin caught fire but with nothing else of signifcance in the frame? No, that would've been purposely misrepresenting the seriousness of the story by showing something vacuous. Aha!

The whole chain of events stinks to high heaven, from Obama's self-glorification through Biden's outing of the group to the tragic loss on August 6. I pray to God that the White House will return to American hands next year.
