Oh this is just precious.
On the last night of the Democratic National Convention, a retired Navy four-star took the stage to pay tribute to veterans. Behind him, on a giant screen, the image of four hulking warships reinforced his patriotic message.
But there was a big mistake in the stirring backdrop: those are Russian warships.
Well I mean the Russian sailors are veterans, and we did the whole reset button thing with them, so maybe they meant to do it.
Naval experts concluded the background was a photo composite of Russian ships that were overflown by what appear to be U.S. trainer jets. It remains unclear how or why the Democratic Party used what’s believed to be images of the Russian Black Sea Fleet at their convention.
A spokesman for the Democratic National Convention Committee was not able to immediately comment Tuesday, saying he had to track down personnel to find out what had happened.
They were actually trying to find a way to avoid people wondering if this was Obama showing Putin some of that flexibility he had mentioned.
Now at his campaign events they have Spetsnaz guys doing backflips tossing hatchets behind him as Barry tells the tale of shooting bin Laden in the eye. Pathetic pandering.
