    Obama speaks with world leader on phone while holding baseball bat
    Posted by
    CNN White House Producer Lesa Jansen

    (CNN) - It's still a mystery why President Barack Obama was holding a baseball bat during his telephone conversation with Turkey's prime minister earlier this week. An official White House photo shows the president with the bat in one hand and a phone in the other.

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked about the photo on Tuesday and promised get some answers but so far nothing.







    The photo is getting quite a bit of attention in overseas publications wondering about "hidden messages" or the "symbolic meaning" of the president holding the baseball bat.

    The White House released a short readout of Monday's call, which focused on Turkey's neighbor Syria, saying the "two leaders shared their growing concerns about the Syrian regime’s ruthless attacks against its own people, most recently in Aleppo."

    Tensions between Turkey and Syria have escalated after the Syrians downed a Turkish plane earlier this summer.

    What "hidden messages" Was it a video call? Could they see that Obama was holding a bat? I'm not really sure what the point of this story is.

    If this story is legit, the eventual answer is likely to be interesting.

    Nothing happens by accident. The photo is fairly clearly posed. And when it was taken/published there had to be relative certainty it would generate a response.

    Too funny.....

    Rumor has it that there was similar photo taken as a practical joke during the the Clinton administration. Monica was standing there with a big smile holding on to Bill's "bat". (Bill was ginnin' too) But at the last minute they decided it may be a little controversial to publish so it got nixed.

    Will try to find the link....

    HAHAHA I would love that. That would be an investment opportunity like nothing else in the middle east. Let me supply a little ideology for that too: there is a popular school of thought that "nations" that have no (historic) experience in running countries, shouldn't. And Syria has clearly not run anything when Turkey has a 500 years experience in running the entire Middle East under a united administration. (Actually, this WOULD make financial sense. What do you think?)
