Obama Meeting Hangs Philippines Flag Upside

Do not worry, Philippines is not at war. Their flag was just hung upside down at a meeting. These unforced errors really do not reflect well on Obama's foreign policy and his team, even though it is not specifically Obama's fault.

Philippine Flag Upside Down at Obama NY ASEAN event

"Yes, yes, the Philippines is a close American ally. A practicing democracy in Asia with nearly 100 million people. And a whole bunch more living -- and voting -- abroad in places like the United States.

And, yes, the island nation's president, Benigno Aquino III, was sitting at President Obama's left elbow at their ASEAN meeting in New York City last week. And directly behind Aquino the American staff placed the Philippines' flag, well, kind of upside down. (That's it second from the right in the photo above, the one with all the blue at the bottom, which should be at the top.)Philippine Flag flying properly"
