Skip to comments.Situation Room Photo Fake! (Obama photoshopped in!)
Posted on 12/08/2011 6:15:06 AM PST by Bon mots
This is not one of my 'Photoshops', this is one of the most viewed photographs ever on Flickr, and it was posted by the Whitehouse on their official WH Flickr account. A popular Swedish program has uncovered something very funny about it.
Notice how small Obama is in the picture? Much smaller than all of those who surround him.
Afton Bladet (Sweden) - Original Article (From Today!)
In this famous photo, he is the smallest midget in the room. Directly to his right is Biden, who at 6'0"(183cm.) is smaller than Obama... yet, he makes Obama look like "mini-me" in this crappy photo-shop job.
He obviously, was not there, and his propaganda department photoshop experts, who messed up his BC - and got away with it, also did this crappy Photoshop job.
Not only that, but he has the biggest head of anyone known, but it looks quite small in this picture.
The WH already said this was not a real picture, there was nothing on the screen when it was shot. They said it was staged.
Note, too, the guy in the back with the light of heaven shining on his shoulders.
That’s true. Everyone’s head is bigger - even the gal at the very back of the room.
What, another Dan Rather/Mary Mapes/SeeBS moment?
Just like his fake birth certificate.
The Kenyan lizard was playing golf while Osama was getting a hole in one.
ODrama is also leaning forward and is some 5 or 6 feet further back from Plugs (who may not have put on deodorant that day). That's why he looks smaller. There was a photoshop of this photo before... Hillary and come woman in the far back were both edited out.
Did the analysis take forced perspective into account? If Obama is sitting back away from the table, he’s going to look smaller than he is. Without a second angle, it’s hard to tell by how much.
And of course, as noted above, the photo was staged anyway.
I always thought this pic looked bogus
Incredible shrinking man.
He is tall but of slight build and he is hunching forward.
People see what they want to see. I’ve seen “Experts” argue for days over this kind of thing. One says it’s OBVIOUS one way and the other one says it’s OBVIOUS the other way.
The only pertinent fact is that he was golfing 20 minutes before our troops went in.
Most FReepers knew it was a fake when it first came out.
It is hard to miss.
Someone else here said when this was first published, Obama makes it look like ‘take your kid to work day’ at the White House.
Interesting. I remember the day the photo came out, (I hadn’t seen it yet) and Rush was amazed that somebody released it. He said “He looks like the smallest guy in the room!” Rush didn’t suspect a fake, but he thought it made the kenyan look insignificant.
“The WH already said this was not a real picture, there was nothing on the screen when it was shot. They said it was staged.”
Didn’t realize they’d said this.
Similar article was posted here on FR close to the time of the killing of Osama.
Same photo, but I do not remember the source. Suspect it was from here in U.S.
Same conclusion then.
Someone questioning this photo yet his FAKED birth certificate gets no attention?
I thought when I first saw this photo that it was ODD. Here we supposedly have the POTUS sitting on a stool? while the Air Force guy is sitting in the biggest office chair I ever saw. No one says “ here, Mr. President have the best chair in the room and the one with the best view of the action”.
“Never mind I’ll just sit over here on this milk crate”.
