The ball's in your court, Pentagon!

Joe.My.God has since reported that the above photo was "staged" by the IDF and that the two guys holding hands are not a couple, and one of them is not even gay! The Times of Israel has the dish:
What do you think? Does it matter that the picture was part of a marketing campaign and is not of a real gay couple? To me, the more important point is that IDF is deliberately trying to market itself as a tolerant organization, one that would recognize gay pride. There is a question if they are so tolerant why couldn't they find an actual gay couple to pose for the photo. So maybe IDF is trying to claim they are gay-tolerant when they actually aren't?
