What all was going on in the Situation Room during that fateful shutter-snap? A variety of Post experts — yes, even a food critic and a home-decor writer — analyze that iconic photo of the president and his national-security folks watching the hit on bin Laden from afar. Dance critic Sarah Kaufman notes that your attention is drawn to hand-over-mouth Hillary Clinton, “expressive, emotional and human, a Cassandra who stands out amid the lockjawed, impassive ensemble.” Yeah, whatevs, the secretary of state said this morning: She was probably just “preventing one of my early spring allergic coughs.”

In other news: NFL Players Association President Gene Upshaw left behind a mess when he died a couple years ago. His will revealed $15 million in deferred compensation from the union that set his family squabbling — and has irked retired players, who had no idea he was getting that kind of payout. And more on Prince Charles’s visit: The British monarchy may be a relic of times past, but he was a pioneer when it came to conservation and sustainability talk.
