And all this time we were led to believe the President killed Osama Bin Laden with his bare hands.

After Bin Laden was taken out, the White House released this photo of a serious-looking President monitoring the situation…

In the months afterward, we were all led to believe that this was really what happened in the situation room…

Now we’ve learned that this was actually what was going on during the Bin Laden raid…

Via the Daily Caller:

Despite the picture the White House released showing President Obama intently watching the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, his former “body man” says the president spent most of the raid playing a card game.

“Most people were like down in the Situation Room and [the president] was like, ‘I’m not going to be down there, I can’t watch this entire thing.’ So he, myself, Pete Souza, the White House photographer, Marvin [Nicholson], we must have played 15 games of spades,” former Obama aide Reggie Love said at an event in Los Angeles sponsored by The Artists & Athletes Alliance in July.

A CBS News (h/t Gateway Pundit) report indicated that “U.S. troops were at the compound for less than 40 minutes.”

How long exactly does it take to play “15 games of spades?”  Can that be done in under 40 minutes and if so, how much time does that leave for the President to be in the Situation Room to monitor any of the raid?

A Swedish newspaper previously claimed that the situation room image was photoshopped, based on the President’s size.  Perhaps he had to be photoshopped in because he was off playing spades with his body man?
