ARE WE SEEING THINGS IN FOCUS?
by Sharon Rondeau
(May 6, 2012) — Photos of Barack Hussein Obama during his recent “surprise” trip to Afghanistan supplied to Yahoo! news service have either been reduced from their original size or show him at a distance.
An observer who searches these particular photos of Obama’s activities every day told The Post & Email that photos of thes trip to Afghanistan which were available a few days ago have disappeared. “I’ve seen photos come and go, but not on this scale,” the observer said.
In a search for photos of Obama from the May 1, 2012 trip, some photos come up which do not show Obama at all, but rather, a news ticker in Times Square, military security vehicles to be used in the motorcade, or Cubans carrying a sign addressing Obama during a communist May Day parade.
The Washington Post still has full-size photos of the trip depicting Obama interacting with members of the U.S. military. Obama went to Afghanistan one year after the reported killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan by U.S. Navy Seals and signed a “strategic partnership agreement” with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
A photo showing Obama with distinctly swollen cheeks which this writer has on her desktop has been removed from its full-size public location, although it can still be seen lower on the original page.
A “File” photo by Carolyn Kaster appears to be the only one which shows the left side of his face in this group of pictures.
There are no public photos of Obama from today, May 6, 2012.
Kaster provided another close-up photo of Obama on May 3, 2012 during a Rose Garden “Cinco de Mayo” address. Before Obama finished greeting those who had been present to hear his remarks, the live video feed was cut short.
Where is the evidence of Obama “taking photos with as many troops as possible?”
After news of the trip was released on Twitter by an Afghan news service, the White House was said to have denied that Obama was there.
