The White House plans to soon release a photo from the controversial Air Force One-style flyover of Manhattan last week, despite claiming earlier that there was no need to release any official images from the incident.

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.

Okay... Releasing "torture" photos that will undermine our anti-terrorism efforts, provide ammunition and intel to our enemies and endanger the lives of our operatives is no problem, but releasing a photo that embarasses this adminstration is like pulling teeth, even though it has no national security impact. Tells me what the Big O's priorities are.
