Swedish Paper: Obama Photoshopped into Famous Situation Room Photo


The caption reads (translated): Do you see what is wrong with this picture?

Swedish news agency Afton Bladet claims the famous “chipmunk in the small chair” was photoshopped.

What’s wrong with this picture?
The Swedish news agency, Afton Bladet, is telling us to

“Look closely, the picture from the White House ‘Situation Room’ in connection with Bin Laden’s death holds an impressive error … Can you detect it?”.

They say Obama was photoshopped into the picture. AB insists that the president was just way too small in the picture. It must be a fake.
Via Free Republic.

Obama was really out golfing that day.  Maybe he got stuck at the 19th hole?

UPDATE:  Afton Bladet mocked the White House. They added Keanu Reeves to the photo in their video. Hah!

    No NO NO Obama was the only one in the room because he did took out UBL all by himself. Everyone else wss photoshopped in. bahahaaha

    I’m gonna go them one further and say he was photo shopped into the presidency.

    He’s too small for that too…

    Great line!

    Seriously….Obama is a tall guy (6’3″ or so), yet he looks disproportionate when compared to the rest of the people in the room. It would not surprise me if he was “shopped” in. Actually, nothing about this administration surprises me anymore.

  • sean

    If that is a Photoshoped image it’s a very good one, even going as far as altering the meta data to correct and remove any inferences of Photoshop and ensuring the proper Canon EXIF data remained. The issue with the Swedish paper’s analysis is you can’t compare Obama and Biden’s head size to determine if he was added to the photo since the perspective and depth is off between the two men. The better comparison would be between Obama’s head size and the four star general to his immediate left. Obama seems to be leaning in enough that it would place his head on the same level of depth as the general and therefore a quick comparison between the two would tell you if it’s real or not. My guess is it’s real, insofar that he was in the room at the time of the photo, not that it wasn’t staged.

    No, if they had photo-shopped Obama into the picture, they would have put him in a suit and tie (like everyone else) and not in his golf clothes.

    Assuming that Obama knew all of this was going down that day and the disaster it would be for his presidency were it to fail, one would assume that Obama would be in suit and tie and sitting at the head of the table (sort of like a President). Yet, we see him sitting off to the side wearing of all things, golf clothes. How odd.

    Now why would Obama be wearing golf clothes on such a momentous day where he must have known he would be photographed? Why would he not be sitting at the head of the table?

    Could it be that Obama had no idea this was taking place? That he was actually (as insider reports have stated) called in off the golf course as the operation had already begun? That he is sitting off to the side because he was the last arrive? That Obama actually had nothing at all to do with the killing of Osama Bin Laden?

  • owl

    Surely they just did a small adjustment. You see, he was beside that woman at the back of the pack and then someone said ‘hey, it looks like he’s hiding back there’ and they moved him forward a bit.

  • AntiWacko

    Despite the usual garbage from Conservatives, the report displays ignorance about photography. People closer to the camera appear larger. Also, Obama was leaning forward.

    BTW, despite deliberate sabotage by the Anti-American TP-GOP, Obama is moving America forward. Bigots have a problem recognizing this, because their minds are clouded by their bigotry.

    Maybe, the Conservatives who displayed their hate (in the earlier comments) should crawl back into the Right Wing sewer from which they emerged. Their ignorance is awesome.

    re: [It is undisputed that he (finally and reluctantly) ok’d the mission.]

    believe it is

    [Q: You stated that President Obama was “overruled” by
    military/intelligence officials regarding the decision to send
    in military specialists into the Osama Bin Laden compound.
    Was that accurate?

    A: I was told – in these exact terms, “we overruled him.” (Obama) I
    have since followed up and received further details on exactly what
    that meant, as well as the specifics of how Leon Panetta worked
    around the president’s “persistent hesitation to act.” There appears
    NOT to have been an outright overruling of any specific position by
    President Obama, simply because there was no specific position from
    the president to do so. President Obama was, in this case, as in all
    others, working as an absentee president.]

    Altering meta data is not very hard. Especially with the amount of money this admin has been throwing around. If he was actually there, why would he not have a laptop of his own like all of his cabinet members. Also I would imagine the POTUS would be at the head of the table since he is the highest ranking official in the room. Thats one thing a 1 star of all people would recognize as a sign of respect. Take a complete look at the picture then take a look at all the discrepancies; it leads one to believe it’s a photoshopped picture.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Wait.

    Who is the guy in the newspaper’s photo who ISN’T in the one below it?

    In the newspaper’s photo, he’s sitting right in front of Obama, and is missing from the one we’ve all seen.

    Did the newspaper photoshop someone in? Sure looks that way. Why??!

  • Radegunda

    You don’t need to say the picture was ‘shopped to see what a phony non-leader Barry is. He certainly looks like he was pulled off the golf course and dragged into the room, and he’s resentful about having to be there. He does NOT look like the person in charge.

    Also, wasn’t this the time when the video feed had gone blank and they were looking at nothing? It may have been a staged photo, but they couldn’t even get Barry to appear presidential for it.

  • Radegunda

    Taq #28, I think the paper was trying to illustrate something about scale.

  • sean

    You’re welcome Valerie.

    S, it’s true you can fake EXIF data, but based on the total evidence it’s impossible to say with any certainty this is photoshopped. You can state seating arraignments as a clue, but honestly this just looks like Obama was seated next to the one star general in charge of running the operation, not that he was misplaced like some late-comer to Thanksgiving dinner. A better argument is the composition of the photo itself, the focal point wasn’t Obama at all, but rather the one star general at the head of the table, so if you want to travel down holes of a conspiracy theory you can state the professional photographer did not compose the image properly by focusing not on our dear leader but someone who doesn’t even seem interested in what is going on in front of them.

    Also, did anyone catch the Keanu Reeves in the Swedish headline photo? I think they’re having a bit of fun at American’s expense.

    So, if it was photoshopped, then by whom? The rightwinger blogosphere, to make him look, well, like he does in the pic — small and unimportant…. or the White House, to make it look like he was there?

    As I recall, this image was RELEASED by the White House — so it would have to be the latter.

    @Taqiyyotomist and Zim: The bearded guy in the first pic is Keaneau Reeves from the “Sad Keaneau” internet meme. The meme has people photoshop a picture of Keaneau sitting on a bench despondently into into various pics. Needless to say the first pic is definitely photoshopped. The second one, probably not.

  • melanerpes

    A quantitative analysis is possible. Compare the ratio o1/d1 of chin-to-cranium lengths of Obama and Daley in the “chipmunk in chair” image to the corresponding ratio o2/d2 from this image of the two men. (Obama and Daley appear to be about the same distance from the camera in both images). If o1/d1 < o2/d2 by a significant margin, then that is strong evidence for the theory.

    From #23, bg —
    President Obama was, in this case, as in all
    others
    , working as an absentee president.

    Harvard Law Review members would agree wholeheartedly from what they witnessed during his stint as president.

    Add this to their complaints:

    Ross wrote on his blog that he “spent some time” with an unnamed professor who was “the highest tenured faculty member” at the University of Chicago who claimed Obama “applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered.”

    “A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find [Barack Obama] an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach,” Ross continued. “The board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.”

    Ross further claimed other professors “hated” Obama because “he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool.”

    Taq, Sean,
    I said it appears it could be photoshopped, just by the mere discrepancies and mannerisms of the photo. BO not being in the head seat as would typically be for a person in his position. Also no laptop leads us to believe that he wasn’t really working (no surprise there). Just things that would normally appear in a picture or situation if he were there contributing the to the discussions or actually there. He could have just been pulled off the golf course and thrown into the room; it’s a possibility.

  • RokShox

    I say this over and over. The telling thing about that photo is that it is NOT the President’s Situation Room. It’s a small conference room within the NSA complex.

    One that could be reserved without alerting the President’s people what was happening.

    He’s sitting there in his golf attire because they summoned him off the golf course once everything was going down. Check Getty images from that day (May 1, I think) and you’ll see a picture of him walking into the WH from the golf course wearing the exact same clothes.

    It reveals Obama to be exactly who and what he is – a junior chipmunk sitting off to the side, while other people are calling the shots.

    It makes him out to be small and inconsequential.

    It’s a picture that is truly worth a 1,000 words … and none of them complimentary.

    Walters interview betrays the Syrian people, the
    Syrian opposition and gives stage to a sociopath

    [“Barbara Walters’ irresponsible and disgusting interview of President Bashar al-Assad was a direct betrayal of the people of Syria who have sacrificed everything in hopes of attaining their freedom. ABC’s decision to send Walters’ to Damascus and continue their tour of the Middle East’s leading despots demonstrates a complete misunderstanding of just who these assassins are and what they have done to their own people. Walters’ post interview analysis goes as far as giving Assad the perception of being disconnected from what is happening at the hands of his military. Instead of seeing the broad abuse that is taking place hourly in Syria, ABC viewers were subjected to a litany of insane denials. It was as if Assad was laying the groundwork for the day he will face a tribunal in The Hague by separating himself from his actions.

    As if Walter’s interview was not enough, the U.S. State Department has the unmitigated gall to offensively chime in with Deputy Spokesman Mark Toner stating ‘just from what happened or what took place in the interview, he appeared utterly disconnected with the reality that’s going on in his country and the brutal repression that’s being carried out against the Syrian people.’ Toner may as well have been testifying on behalf of Assad. Toner’s statement continues to demonstrate this Administration’s incomprehensible strategy in dealing with this regime. Its inconsistency of one day calling Assad illegitimate and the next recognizing the validity of his government by returning Ambassador Ford to Damascus is allowing this sociopath to continue his tyranny and reign of terror over the Syrian people. Is it any wonder the Syrian people have no faith in the United States effectively siding with them.]

    so true.. *sigh*

    he was lying were being shown throughout the interview,

    Redbeard, TRUE! As a recovering Lying Liberal who was blessed with a rare moment of insight into my obvious dishonest selective logic behavior I realized that liberal points of view can only exist in the absence of ALL the facts that allow for a truly informed perspective. As much as I still revere the GREAT Scoop Jackson I haven’t seen an honest perspective in a Democrat since 2006 with the exception of Zell Miller and occasionally Joe Lieberman. Like Arlo Guthrie stated recently, “There is only one party interested in smaller, limited government”. That used to be one of the goals of the 60’s movement of which I was a vociferous part of. Unfortunately many from the 60’s have BETRAYED that goal and now stand for CONTEMPTIBLE NANNY STATE-BIG BROTHER-OBTRUSIVE-CONTROLLING-THIEVING GOVERNMENT. It’s a disgrace!!!

    Just noticed this, also. Why would Obama, with an ego the size of the International Space Station, sit in a corner chair while a lowly AF two-star sits at the head of the table?

  • GLearner

    I’m guessing no one actually read the article quoted?
    It’s showing how people photoshopped Keanu Reeves from the Sad Keanu meme into the original: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/keanu-is-sad-sad-keanu.

    It’s a TV tabloid site, for Pete’s sake. Honestly I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at the gullibility of people on this site (particularly Jim Hoft himself). We’ve become a parody of ourselves.

  • Visitor Here

    Although Obama is 6’3″ (so they say), he has a tiny cranium. Much smaller head-size than other humans who are not nearly his height. So although it’d be predictable IF this was photoshopped, it appears to be just another photo that reveals Obama to be the tiny-headed guy that he actually is. He’s also sitting behind everyone in the foreground of the room, and he’s hunched down, but he STILL simply has a tiny cranium. So much for his ‘me smart’ meme.

    Look at other photos of Obama taken with other people. Even Sarkozy at his dainty, short height has a larger cranium (“head size”) than Obama does at nearly a foot taller than Sarkozy.

  • Visitor Here

    That photo to my view shows how tiny a man Obama is. He may be taller than most, but he’s a tiny human being: very thin, very tiny head, feminine hands, huge ego out of proportion with reality. All told, an insecure, overtly aggressive person mostly because he’s incapable of actual strength.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    AB insists that the president was just way too small in the picture. It must be a fake.

    Maybe at the bottom of the photo there should have been in print, “The president in this image is actual size.”

  • Erik

    Aftonbladet is leftwing, it’s owned by the Socialdemocratic party and the unions.
    That said, this is in the entertainment section, and it’s a Schulman video. The two Schulman brothers are not journalists, they are more “entertainers” or “pundits” in a very loose sense of definition. The closest comparison might be something like Jon Stewart and Bill Maher, except Schulman doesn’t pretend to be anything about news or truth. They’re publicity hogs and will do anything to get headlines. They have been known to manufacture a story, and then make a big thing of following everyone else covering that story.

    So the source of this story has no credibility.
    I’m not qualified enough to speak of the picture, but I figure that noone would go through the trouble of photoshoping the One in there and then place him in a “chipmunk” seat. If it was photoshoped he would be in the center seat, or standing up in a pose.

    Of course you have never been misinformed about anything in your life have you? Otherwise, that would according to your apply it to everything theory make you a parody of yourself. Right? And of course your theory should also apply to all those liberal sites that got punked by the SEIU hoax right? Did you go there and post your disgust with them also or are just another dishonest partisan hack that is fooling no one but other small minded individuals like yourself?

    I don’t know a thing about photoshop but my eyes tell me there are several things wrong with the photo. I thought the same thing when it first came out but I didn’t think about it much because Obamao is such a pussy to start with I didn’t want to dwell on it. Why would he be sitting in the back corner with no lap top? He’s not much of a human when it comes to size but the scale here is all wrong. As was mentioned, he is not looking at the what the others are looking at. I should think a person with his ego would be sitting in a prominent position in the room which I believe someone said is not the situation room. Looks like the General has his chair. Anyway, he wouldn’t sit where he couldn’t put his feet up on the table and show everyone the soles of his shoes – you know, the muslim thing. The whole thing is a put up deal befitting the loony chump.

    Geez Jim… are you that desperate to make the President look that bad that you’re really ready to give up any integrity you once had?

    and i consider myself a die-hard conservative, but stunts like this just make you look petty and vindictive…

    What is Emanual Rahm doing in this pic? Isn’t he supposed to be in Chicago, doing Chicago Mayor stuff??

  • anizira

    Rahm gave his resignation on Oct.1,2010,,, the fake situation room was on May 2, 2011, and Rahm sworn into Chicago Mayor on May,16,2011, so what was his sorry a$$ doing in a sit room , fake by the way, the photo is half photoshopped, some of it took place at a dif time, about unrelated stuff. I believe the swedish just want to reinforce the fact that more than half of America already knows. The United States Government are trying to fool not only America, but the World. Nobody is fooled. U.S has been infiltrated and Usurped by a very small headed man. In my opinion, I would have made him look even smaller than our Government did. In this photo, they made him look like he has a brain size of a tomato, but in actuality, it is pea size. Rahm left in time to miss our very Elite of Elite Seal team 6 get taken out, because someone in that group believed in Our Constitution, and they were going to talk. God rest their souls, and everyone else that has been, is, and will be a victom of these traiterous idiots we have for Goverment.

    We know that you cannot trust the govt. Bush set up the 9/11 attacks to boost his popularity and so that he could attack Iraq.

  • anizira

    I know where we are heading, and I know what I am prepared for,, and I know I will do what I have to, should & when that time arrives. I bet MORE than 3/4 now of American citizens know this is a FACT. We know who we are, and we know what we are fighting against,,, AND we know that WE WILL WIN. Take heed.

    The photo is not photoshopped by Aftonbladet or any other Swedish newspaper. The photo is a part of a story about memes. This particular one shows “sad Keanu”. It’s a photo that has been around on the internet for awhile and the Swedish newspaper chose to make a story about memes and this photo was one mentioned. If Obama is photoshopped or not is not the point. The newspaper did not construct this photo themselves, they simply used a photo that was already on the internet. To show “sad Keanu”. Stop over analysing it.

    How come 90% of comments have not noticed

    SAD KEANU

    Keanu Reeves is sitting in front of Obama. It’s an old ‘shop. Not done by the Swedish paper. They are doing a bit about internet memes. Weather or not they discuss Obama is irrelevant. It is Keanu that is photoshopped.
