13 NEW 9/11 PHOTOS - WHERE ARE THE 2,766 OTHER PHOTOS?

Back to those 13 new 9/11 photos again (sorry, but I smell a rat) ...

There are two things that are deeply bothering me, and, as usual, don't seem to bother anyone else...

A) ABC NEWS HAD TO USE THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT TO ACQUIRE THESE 13 PHOTOS

B) THERE ARE 2,779 IMAGES IN TOTAL!

Let's analyse this a bit, shall we ... ?
A) If ABC had to use the FOIA to get these photos, then, by definition, someone was protecting the photos from public scrutiny. Why else would ABC have had to resort to FOIA requests to get pics from their buddies in government?

B) Why were only .04% of the photos released - even after an FOIA request? The only reason an FOIA request can be turned is ... National security reasons, or compromise of an ongoing criminal investigation. The latter can hardly be justified, as the attacks were simulcast live at the time.  The former, however, is always used to further cover-ups (Kennedy's autopsy records and brain come to mind). I can think of no other reason that simple still images of 9/11 could not be released.
 
What do you think might be in the 2,766 other photos?! Or, more likely, what's not in the 2,766 other photos?

Why don't Associated Press or ABC or anyone find these questions as important as I do? Hell, AP doesn't even ask the question!
