The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Not Afraid

Easier said when surrounded by bodyguards.

Ehud Barak, Israel's Defense Minister, has been the target of a large number of death threats as of late. Always the inspirational leader, he has come out and openly declared that he's "not scared of anyone."

Which makes Oded Balilty's composition above rather funny in context.

An avowedly unafraid politician of the leftist persuasion, surrounded by a serious crew of pistol-packing security guards. (Who does he think he is, Rosie O'Donnell?)

Anyway, I'd be curious to hear what y'all think: Any bets on whether or not our AP stringer had Ehud's little quote in mind when he put together this series of photographs?
