Obama Refuses to Release Pictures of Air Force One Buzzing NYC


flybyThe $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 NY 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 we’re not gonna see the fruits of this cruel joke?” said Frank Antonelli, 39, one of the Wall Street traders spooked by last week’s flyover.

“I’m not surprised. Obama . . . wouldn’t further all the bad publicity by putting out those pictures.”

  1. The first thing I asked when I heard this story was “Where are the photos?” and “Where was the photographer staged?” but obviously we will never know. Obama has definitely deceived a lot of people who thought that he was pro an open and no-secret government.

  2. Ha ha ha, you got the picture right there and he dosn’t want to make it public. What color was goerge washington’s white horse?

  3. Obama does not want to show us the photos because there are none. The photo-op is all a farce, and we may never know the truth. Obama and his cronies should be sued big time, and be forced to pay NYC for his stupidity.
