He really was signing, but he was signing in Ebonics:
"Dis muh-fuh be sayin' 'bout how he love Mandela an' will be missin' he, but he be lyin' 'bout dat. He really be de muh-fuh who had Mandela put in de prison".

I just watched the entire address by President Obama. The US Secret Service has GOT to be having kittens! It was not until 11:17 in the President's address that the camera pulls back enough to see those around him- Mr. Fake Interpreter is standing 3 ft to to left of Barack Obama.

3 ft is inside the BOP (Blast Overpressure) curve. At 10 PSI. that shock wave is going to destroy your lungs. Even if you discount any wave reflection, 10 PSI is 99% fatal. At that range, 1.5 kg of TNT will get you 10 PSI. Make that 3 kg of Semtex, can probably push that to 15 PSI. THAT is about the limit that a blast and frag suit can keep you alive. Soft body armor (like worn under a suit coat) will not do SQUAT for you. 15 PSI will remove arms and legs.

If Mr. Fake Interpreter had been wearing a vest, Joe Biden would be President right now. Think about THAT.

Mr. Fake Interpreter inside presidential safety zone + theoretical Bomb = theoretical Dead President = lots of embarrassed Secret Service types (as if they aren't already)!

Sorry- I lapse into lecture mode- old habit, And yes, DFlynt nailed it.

Explosions kill two ways. One, gross trauma. Tear parts off body, push things thru body, etc. But the other is BOP- Blast overpressure. While that drops off rapidly with distance (fairly complex formula to calculate), as pressure goes up, the certainty of a fatal injury goes up. At a BOP of 10 lbs per sq inch, you are dead- your lungs just got jellied.

If you are wearing a Darth Vader Suit (think Bomb Disposal Team) you can survive that and a bit more- in a dress suit, you are dead. 99% certain. If Mr. Interpreter had been wearing a suicide vest of moderate size, filled with the favorite high energy explosive (Semtex) he could have taken out the Prez. for certain. And was standing within a meter of the Prez the whole time he was speaking.

And we would have President Biden.

Yep. Even Biden. We've reached and passed the point where any change would be an improvement.

So much for our ever-vigilant "Secret Service". If they actually perform a "service", it is a well-kept secret.

Now we have another school shooting in Colorado! good article by USA today's Richard Feldman about the "failed" policies that have led to more "gun" violence...and how the current admin. has done nothing of an effort to address the real issues. Almost sounds like he's one of us....
