Photograph Interpretation

 

Photograph interpretation is a keystone of intelligence validation.  Surveillance, target acquisition, force estimates and damage assessment are critical to analyzing the relative success or failure of a mission.  In this feature, we will examine and interpret the photos and images that bombard us in a subliminal manner on a daily basis.  A public comment period will be permitted before we post our commentary.

Political Context:  Over the past few months, the Obama administration has been receiving intense pressure surrounding his foreign policy, vis-a-vis the use of the US Military.  On the heels of a failed GTMO closure decree, a controversial Nobel Piece Prize award, a plea for more forces from the field commanders in Afghanistan, the disingenuous reduction of the F-22 program, implementation of draconian Rules of Engagement that have resulted in the deaths of US service members and admonishment from gay rights advocates over ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’, President Obama is engaging in an all out military-motif PR blitz.
