2012 DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION: Used Photo of Russian War Ships in Video to Honor US Veterans

"On the last day of the Democratic National Convention, a retired Navy four-star honored the country’s veterans with a moving speech.  Photos of our capable warships, coupled with a number of what appear to be U.S. trainer jets, completed the message.
The only problem?  According to the Navy Times, the “stirring backdrop” in fact depicted Russian warships.
The Navy Times relates:
'The ships are definitely Russian,' said noted naval author Norman Polmar after reviewing hi-resolution photos from the event.  'There’s no question of that in my mind.'
Naval experts concluded the background was a photo composite of Russian ships that were overflown by what appear to be U.S. trainer jets.  It remains unclear how or why the Democratic Party used what’s believed to be images of the Russian Black Sea Fleet at their convention...."
As usual, it is not the fault of Progressives.
"Democratic officials have issued an apology for mistakenly displaying Russian warships as the background to a ceremony honoring U.S. veterans at the Democratic National Convention.
The apology reads, according to the Navy Times:
'Due to vendor error, incorrect images appeared briefly on screen behind fifty-one veterans during the convention and the DNCC apologizes for this mistake…This error should not distract from the words of Admiral Nathman and others who spoke to President Obama’s strong record on issues that impact those who have served our nation.'
The apology concludes with a swipe at Republican nominee Mitt Romney..."
Progressives are such arrogant elitists that they simply cannot resist pointing the finger at Romney.
Talk about fundamentally transforming America, first Progressives insult Christians and God.  Next they insult Israel (Jerusalem) and Jews and by the end of the convention, they manage to top it off by dishonoring our troops with a photograph of Russian war ships.
Oh boy, the offenses committed by the handlers of the 2012 Democratic National Convention just keep coming.  One can only assume that this is has to do with Obama fundamentally transforming America.
Once again, I suppose that we were not supposed to catch this.  Clearly, there is a message in here but the less than heartfelt apology by Progressives has not been lost on most Americans, especially those who served. (See screenshots below of comments from article at Navy Times.)
