What the heck is this exchange between Obama and an Air Force General about?

This is just... odd:

Are we sure they're exchanging paper? It's hard to tell at that resolution. Many Air Force units have special coins for their units (not money, just ornamental round metal objects). The custom has spread to other parts of the government; when I was deployed, a colleague of mine got the Speaker of the House's "unit" coin. The White House probably has one as well, and the President and the General were exchanging them.

I vote the Pres thinking he was tipping the bellhop to help with the baggage. The general gave him change.

Upset Old Guy:

The guy sitting the desk for RAI sees a transfer of something between the President and an Air Force General and speculates that it could be the kill order for OsL; in a public appearance, out on the tarmac when cameras are rolling, an order for Army pilots and Navy Seals to embark a mission, handed over to an Air Force General. Brilliant!

Obama gave the general a ten spot and the general gave Obama his dime bag. NBD.

Agree with #1 and #9, coin exchanges.

For those who don't know, the personal coins of high ranking officers and civilian officials are highly sought after. You can play a "challenge" whereby you compete to produce the highest ranking coin, and the others buy you drinks. In that challenge, the POTUS coin would be the Ace of Spades trump.

Only if the POTUS in question can find his own ass with both hands without having to call out for a pathfinder team.

If this were a traditional coin trade, I'm wondering why it looked like they were in a consipracy of some sort. It appeared to me they were discreetly trying to slip something to each other........Just my opinion.

Jim Addison:

No doubt, it was a traditional coin exchange. Obama's coin looks rectangular because it comes in a special case with a tiny booklet of inspiring pictures of himself and a thumb drive with mp3s of all his speeches.

The general may not have expected a White House Coin, which is why he has to dig for his own to give Glorious Gutsy Leader.

He's going to snort the remains of OBL, like the liberal media claimed the Bushes snorted various dead people in their Yale fraternities.
This looks like a classic drug buy situation. Money gets exchanged for glassine baggy. Is the receiving "military official" really an official or did he get the outfit from Obama to throw everyone off?
