"Obama Burden" 2

"Obama Burden"



On the Veteran Day, US President Obama visited the Arlington Cemetery. After official presentations, the president went to part 60, dedicated to the military war dead from Afghanistan and Iraq.
What I have tried to show in the film, is a heavy burden that awaits the president.
This was a view of his window as his motorcycle passed through a huge Arlington cemetery.
After returning to the White House. President Obama met his National Security Group to discuss Afghanistan in the White House siding room.
