Yesterday in history…
R.I.P. Elvis Presley
This photograph of Richard Nixon shaking hands with Elvis Presley in the Oval Office was taken on December 21, 1970. Elvis died on August 16, 1977.
“I have gotten from friends all over the country copies of the picture that was this iconic picture taken in the Situation Room while we were watching the operation. And they have been photoshopped in every way you can imagine, including putting you know, coming after the royal wedding, one of these had all of us in one of these big, wide-brimmed hats from the wedding,” said Defense Secretary Robert Gates, noting the potential for manipulation and misuse if the U.S. were to release the photos of bin Laden’s corpse.
