Response to IdaBriggs (Original post)

16. Having done several VIP security details...

with dignitaries from several nations, we never took offense at any 'improper' salute. Sometime it was a good one, sometimes a good try, sometimes just a nod. The acknowledgement is what matters.

The PM of East Whatever, or Secretary of the Department of Redundancy Department may never have served in the military but they have a job that has greater ramifications than being hung up on protocol.

IMO this is a shopped picture. Very few high level officials walk around talking on a cell when cameras are about. If the call is that important, they will finish it before stepping out.
