You peasants and your annoying requests

The White House will release the photo of the flyover of New York after all.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters Wednesday that an internal report will probably be completed this week.

"We'll release its findings and release a photo," he said.

That was after Gibbs indicated Tuesday that the White House would not release any images.

"I've watched CNN," he said at the time, noting the considerable coverage from amateur footage. "I didn't notice a lack of archival material from that flight."

The flyover triggered panic among New Yorkers as well as the internal review by the Obama administration.

In other words, why can't you be happy with what you already have, peasant?

So much for transparency. As Quietman noted in the comments here, some enterprising journalist needs to find out how many other flyovers over other cities have taken place to give the White House some propaganda stills.
