    Looks like one just in front left of the domed building (on roof) seems to be holding a gun

    Didn't see the zoom thingy

    that post further down about a team on a roof looks right enough but I am no expert fun to look though

    It's like they're having a game of "mine's bigger than yours", or "how many cameras and cameramen can we fit on here before the tower collapses :p

    - 4 guys on the roof, deffo a team as all rooftops with line of site would be cleared or secure for press + identical fatigues are a giveaway. Probably 3 spotters covering 360 degrees and 1 sniper.
    - A spotter and sniper also at the back, stepped dome on the roof. On the same roof are also spotters with binoculars wearing similar fatigues.
    - Other teams above left of the video screen towards the back. Posssibly two teams facing front and back.
    - A spotter and sniper on the cathedral looking building tower right at the back.
    - There are also vague shapes behind the top rail of the capitol building, far right. I would imagine further spotters, possibly snipers looking into the crowd.

    Something wrong in the picture - go to Obama and then down a little and right a little, just above the band, see a girl in a purple fleece - zoom in and her feet seem to be missing and she has half a person with an arm around her and only half a head !

    <name drop time>

    I was talking to the photographer a couple of weeks ago, and mentioned the glitches in the image - he pointed out that it is just a preview image we are seeing there and the final commercial version has had them all corrected.
