Wait...this is the famed White House situation room? Meh, I've seen better

The White House staff is debriefed during the raid on Osama Bin Laden. This photo was taken from the White House's Flickr stream. I saw it on Twitter, thanks to Marcus Gilmer. The caption reads:

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with members of the national security team, receive an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House, May 1, 2011.

Wait, this is the situation room? The famed headquarters of the White House, where presidents and advisors are briefed on matters of national security? Really? Because the conference room I did my fantasy baseball draft in was better than this one.

Caption contest, anyone? Winner gets a Car Talk mug.
