The White House is keeping a tight grip on photos from last week’s botched Air Force One promotional photo op over Lower Manhattan.
At a press briefing Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dodged reporters’ questions about last week’s photo-op, which cost over $328,000 in taxpayer dollars and frightened a broad swath of lower Manhattan, site of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center towers.

The Obama administration agreed late Thursday to release dozens of photographs depicting alleged abuse by U.S. personnel during the Bush administration of prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan.
At least 44 pictures will be released by May 28, making public for the first time images of what the military investigated at facilities other than the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.
