Since his catastrophic election, Barack Hussein Osama has done everything else wrong, but he did have the good sense to happen to be president when the SEALs caught up with Obama bin Laden. He has nothing else to run on, so he will be milking the SEALs for every drop possible:
A White House photographer was allowed to take and widely distribute a photo from the ceremony Tuesday for the return of the remains of 30 American troops killed in a weekend helicopter crash in Afghanistan despite the Pentagon’s claim that any public depiction of the scene would violate the wishes of bereaved families.
The Pentagon’s “claim”? Is there some reason to think the military is lying about this? Oh I see, the story was written by the moonbats at AP.
Pentagon officials had said that because 19 of 30 of the American families of the dead had objected to media coverage of the remains coming off a plane at Dover Air Force Base, no images could be taken. In addition, the Pentagon rejected media requests to take photos that showed officials at the ceremony but did not depict caskets.
President Barack Obama attended the ceremony, called a “dignified transfer,” for those killed in the worst single loss of the nearly 10-year war. An official White House photo of a saluting Obama was distributed to news media and published widely. It also was posted on the White House website as the “Photo of the Day.”
If you think this was shameless, wait until just before the election, when his Hollyweird idolaters get their product to market.
