So, in essence, Obama was being given a briefing for something that had already happened and his look reveals a mixture of emotions.. It’s one of those ‘now that it was a success I’m a bit upset I didn’t okay it in the first place’ kind of moments. LOL
I looked at this some more and compared the well publicized photo vs. other situation room photos.
-The table appears to the situation room table.
-The General is sitting in the only ‘executive chair’ in the room. It is a highback that is higher and taller than the others at the table.
-Hillary is sitting in a low back chair. That can be determined by the armrest. It is not leather covered. It is wood. So this is a ‘along the wall’ chair for those not at the conference table. Since the conference room table has highbacks all around it - this is odd that anyone would be in a lowback and at the table. Obama is also in a lowback.
-The worst thing in this photo is the background is obviously manufactured. The corner of the room is way to close to the table in the released Bin Laden Photo and the Presidential seal in the real situation room is not near any trim. It is alone on the wall and in the middle of it. There is no door or hall where those it back appear to be.
So this photo is manufactured for some reason.
Here is a link with the wall with the seal.
It seems the ‘Situation Room’ is used for photo ops for the rappers who visit...
But it easy to see the seal is isolated and not next to a door or hallway.
As for the left hand side. Here is a view of the corner of the Situation room.
It is not as cramped as the Bin Laden photo and there is window or display with shutters that should have been in the Bin Laden photo. Also, unlike the Bin Ladin photo there is plenty of room in the corner with a row of lowbacks along the wall and room to walk in between them and the highbacks at the table.
The entire background of the Bin Ladin photo is a manufactured image.
