I selected the photo to go along with this story because when I went to bed that night it was a breaking story of Berglund being released and little detail of whom for. When I got up six hours later it was a story of Obama (complete with video and photos) with the original story buried somewhere within. I could no longer find the links to the original stories. A vast eraser had descended upon the Internet and wiped clean with a replacement story. Impressive, disturbing and the central theme . . . "It is all about Obama." So thank Obama for the sunrise each day, Amerika.
