When the coffins of the servicemen and SEALs that died in that horrific helicopter crash in Afghanistan returned to the US, the families of the deceased asked for a media blackout -- specifically, no photographs -- and were assured by the Obama administration that their request would be honored, they took his word for it.

They should have known better. The shameless fool released a photo of the liar-in-chief taking advantage of a photo op at the event. What a scumbag!

I will not post the photo here, but it's at the link. I won't give him even that much!

White House: No Photos Of Returning Heros Killed In SEAL Helicopter Crash But We Will Release This Picture Of Obama – Update: Carney Attempts To Explain Release Of Photo, Failure Ensues

The official White House “Photo of the Day.”
Update: Why release a picture at all if it really was all about Obama honoring the fallen SEALs?

Carney: Fallen SEALS photo was controlled release


(Washington Examiner) — When the coffins of the fallen Navy SEALS came back to US soil, the Pentagon and the White House closed the event to the press.

That’s understandable. After all, the George W. Bush administration made similar restrictions for such ceremonies, although President Obama overturned the policy.

The press complied as well, but when the White House released a photo yesterday of Obama saluting the coffins at the ceremony, they raised their eyebrows.

When Associated Press reporter Ben Feller asked about the photo today at the White House Press briefing, Carney answered:

“The reason we were able to release a photo, is that it was carefully done so that none of the transfer cases that contained remains were in the picture. . . we were able put those restrictions and control the White House photographer so that the photograph that we released does not cause any of those problems.”

One family member was heard to say "Figures."

That says it all.

If there is a definition for Douche Bag, Obama's face should be the example. Politicians will do what ever they can to stay in power.

They promised a blackout. They lied for political gain and positioning toward the elections. These people lie when the truth would actually serve them better, so who is surprised that they stooped low enough to back stab the grieving families of these fallen soldiers.
