Hillary Clinton, bin Laden, obama

Hillary Clinton, dangerous seductress? That's apparently how the editor of Der Tzitung, an ultra-Orthodox, Hasidic Jewish newspaper, views Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The newspaper Photoshopped Clinton out of the photo when it published the scene in which President Barack Obama and his national security team were a live feed of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound.

In the original photo, which the White House released, Clinton is shown with Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and members of the security team, watching from the Situation Room as U.S. Navy SEALs storm the compound in Pakistan and execute the terror leader on May 1.

Hillary Clinton, photoshop
The ultra-orthodox Hasidic newspaper Der Tzitung Photoshopped the secretary of State out of the photo.
So why erase Clinton from the official photo?

“The Hasidic newspaper will not intentionally include any images of women in the paper because it could be considered sexually suggestive,” The Jewish Week said, crediting the blogger Failed Messiah for initially noticing Der Tzitung’s omission.

“Secretary of State Clinton, wearing a long-sleeved suit jacket, sits with her hand over her mouth,” said The Jewish Week. “I’m not sure how Der Tzitung determined this was a racy photo. Perhaps they just don't like the idea of a woman with that much political power.”
