The photo going around the blogosphere, shown above, has the caption "U.S. President Barack Obama waves while standing with other leaders during the Open Government Partnership event at the United Nations September 20 in New York City. The United Nations General Assembly kicks off September 21, with leaders from around the world attending."
People expressed doubt that this Obama photo gaffe was real and not photoshopped and PJ Tatler dug a little deeper, went to the original source and found the image is indeed from Getty Images and can be found on their site.
Unless this is some kind of hoax of unparalleled proportions, the gaffe-tastic photo of Obama idiotically waving his hand in a group shot of world leaders, blocking the face of one of them (Tsakhia Elbegdorj, the president of Mongolia, as far as I can tell), really is an authentic photo, and is worthy of Internet infamy.Is this a fake? I don't believe so. It does show the arrogance of the man, and he embarrasses the United States once again.
Have at it!
