...Al-Ahram! Egypt's state-run and largest newspaper, whose editors weren't happy to see their Big Boss—President Hosni Mubarak—in the last place of this photo at the White House. Thankfully, Photoshop made him win the race, even beating President Obama.
The photo was taken by Pablo Martinez Monsivais of the Associated Press, during last Wednesday peace talks in Washington, D.C. The Middle Eastern leaders—Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas and King Abdullah of Jordan—were being
guided to the East Room of the White House by President Obama.
In Egypt, however, Mubarak was guiding all of them, which is what happens in a country where they have a state-run newspaper and the President is President since 1981. The editors of 1-million-reader Al-Ahram could have put him leveled with King Abdullah II of Jordan—on the right of the image—but no, they wanted their beloved leader to be ahead of Obama himself.
