(Newser) – The White House won’t release pictures from Air Force One’s much-criticized Manhattan flyover, reports the New York Post. “The photos are classified—that’s ridiculous,” said one city council member. But a White House aide says the fruits of the $328,835 photo-op aren’t classified, they’re just not being shown to the public. New Yorkers are puzzled by the censorship, given other intimate photos of President Obama’s first 100 days.
