This article gives me concern about Obama. First they boo God and now this, they have tried to make America like other nations. I don't want the Dems leading this country any longer if they don't know the difference between the Russian Navy and the American Navy. God help us.
Dems apparently used Russian warships in convention tribute to vets Published September 12, 2012
The backdrop for a Democratic National Convention tribute to U.S. military veterans was apparently a fleet of Russian warships.
The event occurred on the final night of last week’s convention when retired Adm. John Nathman paid tribute to veterans, in front of a gigantic screen that showed what appears to be ships from the Russian Federation Navy, according to The Navy Times.
At least two experts told the publication they were certain the ships were Russian and that the backdrop image appears to be a composite photo that includes U.S. trainer jets flying overhead.
The background shows four ships with radar designs apparently not used in the U.S. fleet.
Navy veteran Rob Barker reportedly detected the apparent mistake and notified The Navy Times. He said his assignment as an electronics warfare technician included the identification of foreign ships by their radars.
The Democratic National Convention Committee was contacted Wednesday but did not comment.
“The ships are definitely Russian,” said author Norman Polmar, a naval and aviation expert.“There’s no question of that in my mind.”

Right off of the wire. Don't you read the headlines or listen to them?
Do some research and stay informed.

"Due to vendor error, incorrect images appeared briefly on screen behind fifty-one veterans during the convention and the DNCC apologizes for this mistake," the statement said, according to the Navy Times. "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."
