The photo was released with mocking Twitter commentary by one current and one former White House senior adviser, both of whom sounded resigned almost to the idea that release of the photo will inflame rather than stanch the conspiracy theories that have already sprung up around the Obama's remark in a New Republic interview that "up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time."
