Obama Administration: Air Force One Photo Op Over Manhattan Triggers Panic … How Ignorant Can They Be?
HOW IGNORANT & INSENSITIVE COULD THEY POSSIBLY BE?
Who needs a “war on terror” when we have people in the Obama Administration who are just “plane” stupid.
A perfect storm of idiocy led to a frightening 9/11 flashback for thousands of New Yorkers Monday when a jumbo jet and an F-16 fighter jet buzzed lower Manhattan without warning.
On September 11, 2001 not one, but two planes hijacked by Muslim Islamofascists terrorists flew into the World Trader Center Twin Towers and brought them down. An incident that left an indelible mark in the history of the Unites States as on that day, September 11, over 3000 innocent people lost their lives in this terrorist attack. A point in history that Obama’s folks seem to have forgotten. One might imagine that New Yorkers get a little nervous when a plane flies what is perceived to be too low over Manhattan, NY as they harken back to that fateful morning.
September 11, 2001
Flash-forward to the Obama Administration and these brilliant wizards who think it is perfectly acceptable to do a fly over of NYC in the area around Ground Zero this morning. Needly to say, NYC Mayor Bloomberg was furious and many residents became frightened triggering memories of 9-11 as many evacuated their offices. Let’s guess the Obama spin, they were just making sure NYC was prepared for another terrorist plane attack by flying a plane low near Ground Zero.
Over the course of a half-hour starting at 10 a.m, the plane flew low over the city and near the Statue of Liberty (4/27/09).
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is “furious” over a Department of Defense low-altitude fly over of NYC in the area around Ground Zero this morning, calling it “ill-conceived” and a “waste of taxpayers’ money.”
A photo shoot involving a 747 used as Air Force One and one fighter jet flying at low altitude led to hundreds of frightened calls from residents and workers in Lower Manhattan this morning, triggering memories of 9-11 as many evacuated their offices. The president was not aboard.
A Photo op? This was done for a photo-op!!! Not only are your hard earned tax paying dollars being used for this ridiculous nonsense, but these people thought buzzing Manhattan was some how appropriate in a post 9–11 world.
The White House at first denied knowing what was going on. That was until officials said the White House Military Office told the Federal Aviation Administration that it periodically updates file photos of Air Force One near national landmarks.
White House Military Office Director Louis Caldera issued a brief statement saying he was too blame.
“Last week, I approved a mission over New York. I take responsibility for that decision,” he said. “While federal authorities took the proper steps to notify state and local authorities in New York and New Jersey, its clear that the mission created confusion and disruption. I apologize and take responsibility for any distress that flight caused.”
Michelle Malkin writes that according to some reports Barack Obama was furious was well with the fly over; however, this is the same president who sat through an anti-American diatribe by Daniel Ortega without batting an eye.
