The italian channel Rai news discovered an exchange of two small pieces of paper between President Obama and General Wilson on April 29, when the President landed at Cape Canaveral airport few hours after giving the order to kill Bin Laden.

I'm not sure what to make of this - there's a masonic handshake and what does appear to be an attempt to covertly exchange something.

hey're exchanging challenge coins, it's a tradition in the US army, nothing out of the ordinary.

Challenge coins?

Like a little inside-game while the camera is rolling?

There are better ways of secret communications... UNLESS...

...they want no record of the exchange, in that case, hand written notes are exactly the way this is done.

e-mails, phone calls and other secure communications can be troublesome, especially in a difficult situation.

In that case you write notes, pass them off like this and then destroy the evidence.

Maybe Obama's note opened up with:

I better win reelection from this, if you want me to play along with this fake show....

Interesting. Is that the traditional way to do it - as in covertly?

Yeah not really covert, but part of the hand shake exchange.

Here is some youtube footage of former President Bush greeting returning soldiers at DFW airport. You can see him giving the returning soldiers challenge coins. Its done in the smae manner, with a handshake.

Starts around 2:00 into the video. If you watch you can see him slip them the coins, then takes the picture, then snags another coin for the next perosn.

Thanks for that....although I have to say I find it sickening to watch knowing what a farce it all is. It does show the coin business, though. It's good to have that clarified.

ladies and gentlemen

you have just witnessed the first ever
presidential crack coc aine sale to be
recorded on video.



while I do agree there seems to be
something exchanged but I suspect
we will never know what it was.
Even though I suspect it may have
been a directive to the General to go
out and buy some flowers for Michelle
for Mother's Day as he probably forgot
with all this fake Bin Laden stuff going on.

But Obama, although "commander in chief" is a civilian.

And since when is a coin a piece of paper?

Looks like staged movement between the two, as it's awkward and unceremonial. If anything private or of value (including crack coc aine lol!) needed to be exchanged between the two, I'm sure they would have done it privately. I guess we'll find out for sure next week when the movie comes out.

And as commander in cheif he gets a steady supply of Presidential coins to hand out.

These coins aren't anything special. I have around 30 that I have collected over time. If I took them to a pawn shop they would give me 3 dollars for it.
