Oh Noes! I want to See the Photo’s

Say What?

The $328,835 snapshots of an Air Force One backup plane buzzing lower Manhattan last week will not be shown to the public, the White House said yesterday.

“We have no plans to release them,” an aide to President Obama told The Post, refusing to comment further.

The sole purpose of the secret photo-op, which sent thousands of New Yorkers running for cover, was to take new publicity shots of the presidential jet over the city.

“The photos . . . are classified — that’s ridiculous,” Councilman Peter Vallone Jr., said.
The photos have not technically been “classified,” a White House aide said, but they are being kept from public view.

New Yorkers said they could not understand how a president who shares intimate snapshots from the White House could justify keeping these secret.

So let me get this straight.  We can release memo’s and photo’s  and even addresseses of private citizens, for “torture” memo’s  that place people lives in danger and make us all look like monsters while making all kinds of accusations like “war criminals”.  But not the pictures from Terror Force One Flyover in NY?  These people were terrified so I for one would like to see those photo’s to see what was so worth there fear. Plus, who was in the plane?
