Update: It appears the White House first uploaded the photo of Obama being briefed on the night of the Benghazi attack on Oct. 11, 2012. The White House then reposted the photo on Thursday.

The very first photo of President Barack Obama being briefed on Sept. 11, 2012, following the Benghazi terrorist attack was posted on the White House's Flickr site on Thursday.

The White House has previously withheld photos of the president taken the night of the attack.

"Denis McDonough, Deputy National Security Advisor, left, updates the President and Vice President on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa. National Security Advisor Tom Donilon and Chief of Staff Jack Lew are at right," the photo's description reads. The White House's Flickr site claims the photo was taken on Sept. 11, 2012 and uploaded on Thursday.

While the photo doesn't provide a lot of information, the picture does seem to confirm that Obama was briefed on the night of the Benghazi attack -- and by whom. What was said -- well, that's another story.
