OK to use Situation Room photo? BY NATASHA KORECKI When gubernatorial hopeful Bill Daley launched his new website on Monday, he included a photo that could trump that of any other candidate in the race. It’s a photo taken in the Situation Room the day Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces. The photo was snapped by White House photographer Pete Souza in May 2011, and shows, among others, an intense Obama leaning forward and Hillary Clinton placing a hand over her mouth while Bill Daley, standing in back, looks on. “This is what leadership looks like,” the caption reads under the photo prominently displayed on BillDaleyIllinois. com. Above the picture, taken in 2011, it reads: “As President Obama’s Chief of Staff, Bill played a key role in the operation that captured Osama bin Laden.” Daley served as Obama’s chief of staff from January 2011 to January 2012. On Monday, his campaign said Daley “was the only non-national security council member or staff member who was in every meeting about that raid.” While Daley in the past has singled out bin Laden’s capture as his biggest moment during that year, he’s likely to have a trove of high profile snapshots taken with high-profile leaders. But is it appropriate for him to use them in his campaign for governor? The use of the official White House photo on a political website seems to tread close to the line on the White House’s own policy on whether photos can be used for political purposes. White House photos carry stern warnings that they may not be used for political purposes that “in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.” The Daley campaign said it clearly does not violate the policy.
