Icon27 Strange Anomalies in the Famous Situation Room Photo

With the re-emergence of another round of gutsy call faux heroism regarding Obama's decision, it may also be a good time to revisit the famous "Situation Room" photo released by the White House. Is it Photoshopped? Like everything else Obama does to make a political point, is the photo a composite?

Recently, the MSM were shocked by the news that a girlfriend in Obama's Dreams book was a composite. For many, such news comes as no surprise.
Yeah, no surprise to the many who actually read the book, including the part in the introduction where Obama wrote: "For the sake of compression, some of the characters that appear are composites of people I've known."

And thre moon landing was staged, too.

Obama is seated in a small folding chair, further back from everyone, and is letting them do their work.

Someone needs to explain perspective to this @$$clown. Otherwise - OMG! Look at Clinton's head relative to Biden's - is she suffering from hydrocephalus? Her head's at least 1/3 bigger!

See, a real patriotic american President, who is proud to be the Supreme Commanding Officer of the mighty American Army would've been in front, with a direct link to the men who do the job, directing their actions instead of passively sitting back.

Why, he's not even wearing his American flag pin!

ETA - How are we suppose to know that he's going steady with the US?

My head hurt reading the OP's link. There's only so much crazy I can read, and this coming from someone who loves reading Spook Central stuff.

Also, I loved the version of this where they're playing video games. There. I said it. I'll start giggling now.

"American Thinker"? The Right is immune to irony, aren't they?
