(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.


And the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Government Hoax goes to....Hillary Clinton, for her dramatic oh-so-shocked hand over mouth gesture.

Biden looks like he's watching a baseball game. Maybe he took bets on how it would turn out and Obama and Hillary lost.

MSM is promoting this photo as if they watched it all go down live and then saying there was a 25 minute blackout during the raid. (which probably took less then that to complete)

I wonder why Obama was off to the side. Shouldn't he be in the big boy chair instead of the General playing online poker.

So one minute they say they don't know the details, and they are waiting for the info from the SEAL team, and then next minute they claim they watched it all go down. They don't even put any effort in any more with their propaganda, it's a real shame.

I think they were watching last weeks episode of American Idol that they have on DVR. This is clearly their reaction when they saw Casey get voted off.

Obama's mad they turned the Bulls game.

Biden is thinking this is a Big F'n Deal.

Its not clear at least in the UK media if they were watching the helmet cams or a top down view from a drone/chopper.
Hilary looks shocked,could be from the chopper crash,or the events inside,

Theres something very grim about the whole image IMHO.
Watching people who are watching a planned execution of someone does not sit well with me,no matter how evil the target.

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.

I did read the OP,and the blackout was mentioned on the MSM,but still not sure what to believe.
They have also mentioned helmet cams and ariel cameras.
I won't just believe one source of info,so who knows at that point what is true.

Anyone think "The Situation Room" should be a little bigger, a little more Presidential, maybe set up with a larger table, formal chairs etc?

As my kid last night commented, " I think Wolf Blitzer's Situation Room is nicer."

Funniest thing about the picture to me is that I was gonna comment and ask the question........Notice how everyone in that room is white?

Then I was like....... Oh man, i'm an idiot.

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.

If you care, my comments, and many other peoples', about this subject and the media's role in it are in these two threads....

www.abovetopsecret.com...
www.abovetopsecret.com...

A summary is that we ALL play a role and bear responsibility in this matter...the White House, the "news" media, and even us. I agree that the media has not been forthright in this. They've made some assumptions and jumped the gun in reporting information that they misinterpreted. But we ought to know by now that they do that. And so should the White House (though it can be argued that they can fully use this to their advantage at times, sometimes it spins even out of their control).

P.S. I read this article yesterday, almost posted it, but decided it was just plain stupid in the way it was written, in what they addressed, and in it's overall tone.

This is not a warm crowd in the photo to begin with but the ice coldness of POTUS is inhuman.

It could always be them watching the person in charge of executing the mission talking them through what went down after it was all over.

I dunno, Hillary to me looks more like she has her hand over her mouth like you do when you're watching something interesting and putting your full attention on what's being said rather than her looking shocked or horrified.
