An Orthodox Yiddish paper has edited Hillary Clinton and “another female participant” out of the iconic White House situation room photo taken during the raid of Osama bin Laden’s headquarters.  The “female participant” is Audrey Tomason, Director for Counterterrorism for the National Security Council.

Photo as published by Di Tzeitung (די צייטונג), a Yiddish newspaper coming out of the Hasidic communities of Brooklyn, NY [source]:

A non-apology has been issued by the newspaper:

The readership of the Tzeitung believe that women should be appreciated for who they are and what they do, not for what they look like, and the Jewish laws of modesty are an expression of respect for women, not the opposite.

Wonder why the “male participants” can’t get no respect.

[For conspiracy theorists, here is the photo they don’t want you to see.]
