Obama White House photographer says photo of Trump watching deadly strike on ISIS leader Baghdadi was STAGED because time stamp suggests it was taken two hours later
Pete Souza expressed suspicion about the photo of Trump in the Situation Room in a tweet on Sunday
He noted that the timestamp indicated it was taken at 17.05pm on Saturday - over 90 minutes after the 3.30pm raid reportedly took place
Many people shared support for Souza's speculation that the photo was posed
The chief official White House photographer for former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama has suggested that a snap of President Donald Trump watching the deadly strike on ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was staged.
Pete Souza, an outspoken critic of Trump, tweeted the photo, which shows the president stone-faced alongside US military top brass, and noted that the timestamp indicated it was taken at 17.05pm on Saturday - over 90 minutes after the 3.30pm raid reportedly took place.
In doing so, Souza appeared to charge that Trump was not actually monitoring the situation when the photo was taken. Several users cited media reports that Trump returned to the White House at 3.33pm after spending his morning on the golf course Others came to Trump's defense and asserted that the raid could have continued through the time the photo was taken Souza acknowledged that possibility, tweeting: 'Before drawing definite conclusions about the photo, reporters need to nail down the actual timeline' Souza has been critical of Trump on many occasions in the past He served as chief official White House photographer for former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama

This Obama one real
That second pic is pretty great. Made me think of the Sgt. Peppers cover!
Is the terrorist less dead? So freaking what!
Says the queer Commie ex-President who shed a tear in Cuba at the Che memorial.
The way the MSM gang does it. They miss their messiah.
They were there too, just crowded out by others in the room!
New controversy number 4,892.
We must spend many days and hours getting to the bottom of this on forums across the internet. And the news panel shows must verbally dissect this issue until next year!
He back tracked yesterday on his claim of staged.
They still call his “The Forever First Family”.
The photographer has already walked back his comments. Yesterday....
Too late. It’s out there. BO spreads BS.
Jealous America-hating mentally ill libs
I suspect the picture shows them “reviewing” video from the then completely successful mission once all the troops were back safe.
So, when did the raid start and when did it wrap up?
I can see not having a photog in during the lead up and the actual process - and not being allowed in until the warriors were well on their way back to safe haven...
They supposedly spent 2 hours on the ground and over an hour going and coming...
hey, where is tourist guy?
Or Brian Williams?
Those guys have been EVERYWHERE.
Like I care what a camera guy says? Seriously?
Probably because the time stamp occurred within the parameters of the initial flight in and the wrap up flight out...over 4 hours from wheels up to wheels down with 2 hours on-site....
Was this photographer there when Obama was celebrating his release of al-Baghdadi in 2009?
Well, no shit, of course it was posed. Otherwise, they wouldn’t all be looking at the camera, they’d be looking at computer screens and other monitors.
