Did a U.S. Marine Flip Off President Obama?


Photo of a U.S. Marine saluting President Obama with the "The bird" has gone viral on the Web. Determination: Hoax - Photoshopped

The photo is a digital manipulation (no pun intended) that was very most created using a Photoshop type program.  The caption said, "A Marine demonstrates a new salute deployed just for Obama."

The crew found the original photo, which was taken as the President was stepping off Marine One, on the Internet.
