The White House Photo Office has declined CBS News requests to release images taken of US officials during the Sept. 11 Benghazi attacks.
CBS News first requested the images on Oct. 31. In the past, the White House has released photos showing US officials during national security incidents. A half dozen images related to the mission that captured and killed Osama bin Laden were given to the public last year. One depicts President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and members of the national security team gathered in the Situation Room on May 1, 2011.
A White House official referred our request regarding the Benghazi attacks to the White House Photo Office.

But it is photo-mania over the “cease-fire”.
Link to WH flickr photo account with lots of cease-fire call photos.
4 photos listed under “cease fire”
“President Barack Obama talks on the phone with Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi in the Oval Office”
“President Barack Obama talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel during a phone call from…”
“President Barack Obama talks on the phone with Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, aboard Air Force One…”
Along with photos of Obama meeting “privately” with disaster victims at FEMA center.
And certainly the turkey pardoning photo would also be available.
(or is that turkey pardoning turkey?)
