DescriptionA few days after a team of Navy SEALS killed Al Qaeda mastermind Osama Bin Laden Shmarya Rosenberg whose website is perhaps the Internet’s only English-language news source devoted to news from the insular world of ultra-orthodox Judaism received a tip from one of his readers in Brooklyn. The reader had e-mailed him a scanned picture from a Yiddish-language newspaper that included the now-famous Situation Room photograph of President Obama and his national security staff receiving updates on the operation in Pakistan—except that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Security Council Director for Counterterrorism Audrey Tomason the only two women in the photo had been airbrushed out.
