OBL’s head is not on a pike on ground zero in the middle of a victory BBQ?

Every time I look at this photo I cannot help but believe that the people in the shot were PhotoShopped... It really looks like the vast majority are under different lighting and the edging looks cut.

Imagine, if you can, the hissy fit that Obama would throw if during a sworn hearing of the Benghazi House Committee, Chairman Trey Gowdy asked Obama: “Where were you, and what were you doing during the night of September 11, 2012?”

The failures, misinformation and mistakes of the bin Laden Raid should be used against Hillary by the GOP in 2016.

The profile edges in fact look a little too crisp.

Yup...edges of people’s forms are too crisp in places. There is no continuity to the lighting or the relative sizes of figures.

The facsimile of “O” is most obvious. He is not in proportion to the other people in the frame. He looks too small and like he was cut out and pasted there from elsewhere.

That picture alone shows that he was not in charge. He looks like he’s merely sitting in to observe.

You will get a more meaningful discussion if you include the meat of the story in your excerpt.

1) Obama Canceled the Mission to Kill Bin Laden Three Times

2) Obama’s Indecisiveness Was Decided For Him

3) Obama Leaked the Identity of Seal Team 6 Leader For Bin Laden Movie

4) Families of Navy SEALs Claim the Obama Administration Was Responsible For the Deaths of Their Sons

5) Obama Drafted a Plan to Blame the Military Had the Mission Failed

6) If He Was Willing to Blame the Military, Obama Should Have Credited Them As Well

7) Aide Claimed Obama Was Playing Cards During the Raid

OMG!!! That is hilarious!

My first reaction to the photo, specifically the AF 1 star, was to have a line from the Avengers pop into my head. When Tony Stark shouted: “That man is playing Galaga. He didn’t think we would notice, but we did.”

Even if real, how in the wide world of sports is the President stuck in a corner by himself?

1) Obama Canceled the Mission to Kill Bin Laden Three Times

Sorry, pal, but this is how it should read:

1) Valerie Jarrett Obama Canceled the Mission to Kill Bin Laden Three Times. She allowed the idiot to pretend he allowed it in the 4th time. That is well known.

Either that or obama’s head is 1/2 the size of those standing further away from him...

LMAO!..Now that's the picture that should have been released!....

The MSM would have called it a nut job conspiracy of anyone that would have questioned the “official photo”

There were some real doozies on some of those threads. I just used “situation room” as a key word search and that thread popped up.
