* UPDATED 5/7/09 – The Administration has now agreed to release “a” photo.
Get used to this. If the administration can’t blame a mistake on Bush then it’s buried. If asked about it again you get chastised by the White House staff. This time it’s about the Air Force One flyover of NYC at 1000 feet. That was just plain dumb. I’m currently living just south of the city and will tell you the NYC folks did NOT appreciate it one single bit. For a group of general Obamassiah sycophants they are pissed.
NYP – 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 photos have not technically been “classified,” a White House aide said, but they are being kept from public view.
Translation: There’s no reason for us not to give the to you, we just don’t want to. So we won’t. Now get back to writing fluff for us.
For an administration that promised to be “open and honest” they seem to be pretty full of crap.
