Daily Obama Photo Op: Sri Lanka (But The Big News Today Was His Reversal on Detainee Photos)

President Obama made his daily photo op for TV and others today to announce that he calls upon the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka to lay down their weapons.

Good luck! 

And most Americans might ask: Who cares and where is that?

It was almost as if an afterthought snuck into the president’s delivery when he explained why he had decided not to release the so called “detainee abuse” photos….

Many in the media have said the president came to this decision on his own but Fox News said the decision was heavily influenced by a huge outcry from the Pentagon…..
