Thursday, 6 September 2012: Barack Hussein Obama II accepts his Party’s nomination for re-election as United States President.  As expected, his wife Michelle is at his side, embracing him, smiling, waving.

While most eyes fix on her smile, the eyes of at least three newswire cameras depict what appear to be serious physical injuries on The First Lady.

The eyes of at least three newswire photojournalists – AP, Reuters – frame, snap, and submit these photos to their editors.

The eyes of these newswire editors review these photos, and upload them to the internet.

Yet now, nearly two months later, not one person – at least not publicly – has stepped forth to ask:

Is there Domestic Violence at the White House?

Today, Terrible Truth asks: Does President Obama wage a [Private] War On Women? Is Enemy #1 Michelle?

Three photos below, taken Thursday night at the 2012 Democratic National  Convention, suggest that Michelle Obama has suffered physical trauma to her left clavicle, left scapula, and possibly to her neck, left shoulder and center back.

These photos are presented exactly as posted by the news wires.

Exhibit A: President Obama hugs First Lady Michelle Obama at the Democratic National Convention, 6 September 2012.

In this photo’s enlargement, below, note the deeply furrowed, vertical wound on her left scapula [shoulder blade] and what appears to be swelling surrounding it.  Darkness to the right may indicate bruising.

Exhibit B: A profile photo of Barack and Michelle’s embrace, below, shows what appears to be Michelle’s bruised neck, and fractured left clavicle [collarbone].

A close-up view seems to indicate that, prior to the event, a sling on her left shoulder has been in place.

Exhibit C: In the kiss photo, below, Michelle’s back appears to present with substantial swelling. Note also the stiff extension of her hand and fingers beyond what would be typical in an embrace.

An up-close view of Michelle’s neck and shoulder:

Did three newswire photojournalists, their cameras, and their photo editors get it wrong?

Did no one who saw Michelle up close, that 6 September 2012 night, see evidence of physical injuries?

If Michelle has suffered physical violence, is there no one who witnessed it?

Or its aftermath?

No doctor? No housekeeper? None of the WH staff? [Let alone, may God have Mercy, her daughters. Or mother.]

Could the Secret Service somehow have ‘missed’ that someone had been violent with The First Lady, given that day and night, she is under close watch?

Consider this: Who could Michelle Obama turn to, if her husband indeed wields physical force against her?

America, I ask you: if these photos accurately depict domestic violence injuries upon the person of Michelle Obama, is her husband, U.S. President Barack Obama, entitled to inflict them?

Does President Obama wage a [Private] War On Women?
