White House Chief of Protocol Capricia Marshall, wearing gloves,
shows the ice to the Dalai Lama, wearing sandals
Nothing that happens at the White House happens by accident. Meetings and other events are scripted with meticulous attention to detail, and security is omnipresent. As Americans, we all understand this.
Thus, when we see an ambush photograph taken in a heavily secured area -- and not by a pool photographer -- of the sandal-shod Dalai Lama being escorted out of the White House by the back door, and along a garbage-strewn path, it is because the White House wants to send us an explicit message.
