Bag’s Take-Away:
With the President pressing Mubarak to begin “an orderly transition” from power, is this Reuters photo illustrating a Reuters article actually calling out Obama for sanctimony? With all hell breaking out in Tahrir Square today, the Administration being cautious not to make any immediate demands, and the U.S. not shelling out $2 bil a year to a corrupt autocrat for nothing, what else could be the motive here in framing Obama as saint or savior?
…One thumb up for a great halo shot, though.
