Vice President Joseph R. Biden appeared Monday to have absent-mindedly stood in front of reporters revealing the cover of a codeword-classified document.

The photo of the vice president holding a file — reading “CODEWORD,” “classified document” and “Vice President” — was originally published by Agence France-Presse.

Mr. Biden had joined President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Oval Office for a talk about Iran and Syria, the White House said.

The contents of the document were not revealed in the photo.
