Bryan Fischer Claims Obama Was Photoshopped Into Bin Laden Situation Room Snapshot

Conservative radio host Bryan Fischer presented the possibility that President Barack Obama was photoshopped into the iconic White House Situation Room photos of the Osama Bin Laden mission during his radio show on Thursday, Talking Points Memo reported.

Fischer said the size of Obama's head, as compared to others in the photo, piqued his speculation.

"Even people standing in the back of the room, their heads are bigger than his head," Fischer said on his show, Focal Point. "And it looks teeny-tiny next to the people that he's sitting next to. He looks kind of hunched over and small."

Fischer played a recording of Reggie Love, Obama's former body man, saying during a Los Angeles forum last month that he and Obama played cards away from the Situation Room on the day of the mission.

"Most people were down in the Situation Room and [Obama] was like, 'I'm not, I can't, I'm not gonna be down there, I can't watch this entire thing," Love said in the recording, which has since been removed from YouTube.

Fischer said the recording might "confirm" that Obama was not, in fact, in the room during the mission. He alleged that Obama only wanted to be a part of the historic moment were the mission successful.

"I think Obama's approach was, 'Hey, if this thing goes south, I don't want to be in the room. I don't want to be anywhere near this thing if it blows up," he said. "If it succeeds, if it's an outstanding success, then photoshop me in there.'"
