The NY Post says that the AF1 photo-op pictures won’t be shown to the public:
“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.
Probably the sight of hundreds of New Yorkers running in panic as AF1 and the two bombers buzzed at full speed at a 1,000 feet overhead is not good public relations, but that’s just a guess.
“The Pentagon will soon release hundreds of photographs showing alleged abuse by US personnel of war on terror detainees during the Bush administration, a US official said Friday.”

While the F-16 has been tasked as a bomber, if the need arises, it is still designated F for fighter. I suppose like the idea floated during the 1950’s that passenger and cargo jets could deliver nuclear warheads by simply having a loadmaster NCO kick them out of an open door currently the 747 is still considered a passenger jet.

What a great point you make in showing that the administration will not release photos that embarrass it, or show its faults, but has no problem releasing photos that damage the military and America in general.
What a disaster this administration is. It is actually worse than I thought it would be.
