Was the leyte landing photo staged?
It was not staged. MacArthur went ashore several times in secret so as not to inform the Japanese of his presence on the beachhead to oversee the progress of the invasion. He then officially landed on Red Beach, Palo, Leyte with then president Sergio Osmena and General Carlos P. Romulo. That accounts for why he had different people with him on some Leyte landing photos.
