Who ever in the WH authorized this … was it the same people who suggested DVD’s for the PM of England and CD’s for the Queen?
One has to be beyond ignorant and out of touch to have suggested let alone followed through with such an action as flying a plane at low altitude over Manhattan. Just how arrogant, insensitive and out of touch is Team Obama? This was just “plane” dumb and has symbolized the start of the Obama Presidency. How could all bases not have been covered? Where does the buck stop?
What was Team Obama thinking? Take a good look for yourself and watch the reaction of panicked New Yorkers as they fled from their office buildings yesterday as they were being evacuated. Before anyone thinks this is political piece against Obama all may want to first consider that Manhattan overwhelmingly voted for Obama and the people fleeing in terror with visions of September 11, 2001 running through their minds most likely did not vote for John McCain
SCARE FORCE ONE
Beyond the obvious stupidity of flying a 747 over Manhattan, ala 9–11 terrorists, one has to wonder why the White House would need such photos? They needed a photo-op for political reasons? This coming from the people who claimed that GWB used 9–11 for political gain.
It was not a terrorist attack, however, but a photo opportunity for Air Force One, sources told the Post.
President Obama was in Washington at the time, but the low-flying 747 circling the Statue of Liberty was one of the planes used as Air Force One, sources said.
Now check out the following video from September 11, 2001 and see why yesterday people were so frightened, Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike. When a plane flies overhead and one is reminded of 9-11 and the 3000 people who died that day, they hardly consider the fact of what political party they belong to. They think of survival and helping their fellow American, man, woman and child. Didn’t the flyover above look and sound hauntingly similar to the one below?
September 11, 2001 WTC
One can only imagine what the MSM would be saying if this had occurred under GWB. To all people no matter what your political affiliation is, this was a colossal screw up by the White House of epic proportions.
