Jerusalem Post: “NY Hassidic paper ‘deletes’ Clinton from iconic photo”
Brooklyn newspaper altered photograph of Obama and staffers watching raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound* to remove all females.

NEW YORK – The photograph showing President Barack Obama and staffers in the White House Situation Room carefully watching the raid in progress by US forces in Pakistan on the bin Laden compound last Sunday [sic*] has been published far and wide.

One Hassidic paper in Brooklyn, however, has chosen to alter the photo – excising Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and another female staffer from the picture.

[It has since come out that they did not actually watch the raid “in progress'”]
