Why Haven't We Seen a Photo Like This from the Night of the Benghazi Assault? (Updated)

The Obama administration has released this photo of the president in the White House Situation Room monitoring the effects of Hurricane Sandy.

The Obama White House released a similar photo from the Situation Room, said to have been snapped during the mission that killed Osama bin Laden.

But we haven’t seen a similar photo from Sept. 11, 2012, the night terrorists murdered four Americans during an assault on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.


We now know that he was in the White House that day, and met with his vice president and defense secretary as the battle was going on. We know that emails came into the White House Situation Room from the field detailing the attack and its origins. We also know that sources in the field during the battle say that they requested help but were turned down three times.

Where was Obama and what was he doing that night? The fact that so far there has been no Situation Room photo strongly suggests that either he didn’t go there, or the photo would show something that the White House doesn’t want shown.

What could that be?

Update: Maybe the what they’re trying to hide is really a who.
