White House Photo of the Day Has Emirati Focus

The reason for the meeting between President Obama and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces and what they talked about has been the substance of an earlier post.

This photo is a beauty with Abraham Lincoln listening in over the Sheikh’s shoulder.

Nice that the White House Photo of the Day has an Emirati connection.
