    Bin Laden Photos

    O.K., actually of the White House team monitoring the event in real time. Still, fascinating photos.

    "Of course the people don't want war ... the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger."

    Looks like the first photo was doctored. Look at the print on Hillary's laptop.

    It was doctored so people couldnt read what was on the paper.

    The captioning on the White House link of these said it was edited out becuse it was a confidential document.

    "Please note: a classified document seen in this photograph has been obscured"

    Yes, thank you, I figured that out. I just didn't see a note saying it was edited.
    If you start to edit photos like this without notes, it can bring conspiracy people out.

    That's true, it only took one post in this thread in fact.

    Yeah, I'm not conspiracy theorist but it looks like the Huffington link didn't mention it like the White House link did. I would think of something of this magnitude, everything should be done to get the details correct.
