(CNN) -- By now, the photo is a classic. It's become the most viewed image on Flickr -- a mesmerizing picture that suggests as much as it reveals.
You may know it simply as the "Situation Room Photo," but you may not be aware of what some say are three subliminal messages that make it so powerful and unusual.
The photo captures President Barack Obama huddled with his national security team in the White House Situation Room as they monitor via live video the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden.
Most commentators have focused on the historic nature of the photo: Obama staring at the screen with a grim intensity; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, covering her mouth to repress her reaction -- the epicenter of U.S. military power hunting down its most hated foe.

Funny my spouse pointed the exact thing out last night, while discussing this. What I don't get is why that is shocking. We all know our govt is a white man's place, well almost. I did not ask him the significance of this but maybe you can answer, just out of curiousity.

Did you read the OP? The came out and claimed afterwards that there was no video due to a 25 minute blackout so the question is what the hell are they claiming to be watching? It's just a staged photo like the whole friggen thing. I can't believe people are buying this. Now the most transparent admin is saying no more talking about it. I guess if the news keep spewing the same lies over and over people will believe its true.
