[This is a photo edited to make it look like Yingluck is on her knees before the U.S. envoy. In the original photo, Yingluck sits on the sofa and confers with US Assistant Secretary of State Daniel Russel after her impeachment. During the meeting the Thai political situation was discussed and the impeachment was characterized as unfair. However, in the edited one, Yingluck plays her respect to the US representatives and try to snitch the US about what has happened to her.]
