The Situation Room is a photograph taken by White House photographer Pete Souza on May 1, 2011. The picture shows President Barack Obama with his national security team in the White House Situation Room receiving live updates of Operation Neptune's Spear which led to the killing of Osama bin Laden. The photograph received much publicity after the news of bin Laden's death became public. CNN called it a "photo for the ages" and drew comparisons to other famous images of U. S. presidents such as Dewey Defeats Truman. Former White House photographer Eric Draper said that the photo captured "a defining moment in history very well." The photograph has also been the subject of comment by historians and body language experts.
