Scare Force One: $328,835 to Taxpayers to Terrify New York City in Fly Over … Feds Knew it Would Cause Panic


Obama Transparency … Feds Knew NYC Flyover Would Cause Panic … Did it any how.

As President Barack Obama tell American to cut costs and states that he will order government departments to cut a paltry $100 million … the low-altitude flight for a publicity-photo shoot and one of the most ignorant, stupid and moronic stunts ever by any Administration cost tax payers $328,835.

 The Feds knew the flyover would cause panic and they did it any how, NICE!

Not only did this stunt cause wide spread panic in Manhattan as visions of September 11, 2001 were brought back to vivid reality as people fled their office buildings in fear of a terrorist attack. This most ignorant act was a waste of tax payers money and an obvious misuse and inappropriate use of Department of Defense resources. It appears that President Obama was in the dark regarding the entire matter and vows that “It was a mistake and It will not happen again.” REALLY? Too late Barack, the screw up already occurred and the genie is out of the bottle. As Michelle Malkin states, just another in a long line a incompetent events and actions that took place during Obama’s first 100 days.


H/T: Michelle Malkin

“It was a mistake,” Obama said today before a meeting at FBI headquarters in Washington. “It will not happen again.”

The incident continued to reverberate in New York and Washington today with two senators demanding an accounting of how the flight was approved, its cost and procedures aimed at avoiding a repeat.

“The supposed mission represents a fundamentally unsound exercise in military judgment and may have constituted an inappropriate use of Department of Defense resources,” Senator John McCain of Arizona wrote in a letter to Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

What makes matters even worse in this colossal screw up is that the FAA knew about this stunt and the Feds knew the NYC flyover would cause panic and they did it anyhow!!! So much for that Obama transparency.

Threatened Federal Sanctions Against NYPD, Secret Service, FBI & Mayor’s Office If Secret Ever Got Out

In a memo obtained by CBS 2 HD the Federal Aviation Administration’s James Johnston said the agency was aware of “the possibility of public concern regarding DOD (Department of Defense) aircraft flying at low altitudes” in an around New York City. But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor’s office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out.

So what does one do after scaring the hell out of people and wasting over $300K of tax payers money? Barack Obama is going to have an investigation into his own Administrations incompetence, waste more tax payer dollars and cover the whole matter up by throwing a minion under the bus, or is it the plane.

Now for the latest lie and spin from the Obama White House … it was not a photo-op, it was now considered a training mission.

Three-Hour Mission

That includes $300,658 for the larger plane, which flew a three-hour mission, and about $28,178 for the F-16 jets, which flew 1.8 hours each, Stein said in an e-mailed statement.

The total includes fuel used in flight, fuel used to power ground equipment used to prepare the aircraft, and ground maintenance, Stein said.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said yesterday’s flyover was “two training missions that became in the end a picture mission” and only Air Force personnel were aboard.

      I agree obongo your election was a big mistake

    2. dave on April 29th, 2009 8:47 am

      It’s way past time to start the impeachment process and get this idiot out of office.

    3. Michelle Smith on April 29th, 2009 9:00 am

      That whole administration is a “big mistake”. A bunch of arrogant & incompetent fools. We can’t afford 4 years of this.

    4. donna on April 29th, 2009 9:08 am

      I AGREE 100% DAVE!

    5. nurturer on April 29th, 2009 9:25 am

      What is there left (ha, ha) to say. Malkin summed it up pretty good.

      The worst is yet to come.

    6. SUPER DAVE on April 29th, 2009 9:33 am

      look at this picture hard enough and you can see the horns on his head.

    7. Rusty Bridges on April 29th, 2009 10:51 am

      #2, google and see if somebody has started the ball rolling. If not, you can get it started. All is needed is a petition sent to house of reps.

      Maybe start a website. go daddy can regstrar the domain and has website builder for very inexpensive starting costs.

      Don’t forget that you will be labled a racist for wanting what is best for your country.

      by the way, he fits the criteria…

    12. Susan on April 29th, 2009 1:13 pm

      buster and dave – I couldn’t agree with the both of you more :-) That damn fool (Osama bin Laden Barack Saddam Hussein Obama) should have NEVER been elected and the IMPEACHMENT process is WAAAAAAAAAY overdue!!

      No doubt the people of Manhattan were petrified :-( There’s no excuse for such IGNORANCE and on the taxpayers dime at that…

    13. SUPER DAVE on April 29th, 2009 1:28 pm

      okay #10: kinda scary that obammy went to mexico and the swine flu started a week later don’t you think ?
      maybe the swine flu started in the white house !

      You know what? When my ancestor left Europe in 1775 to come to the New World for a new life and fight against his homeland, he was putting both his and his wife’s life in danger as they were considered treasonous by the Brits. He would have been shot if captured.

      I too will die and AMERICAN and if Obamanation wants to UNdo America and make is something else, I may as well be labeld as “evil” and “racist” because if it means I disagree with globalization and tearing the country apart, so be it.

      I see happening here what I studied happened under Hitler. Accuse others of what YOU do and lie, lie, lie to get those in society with no self-worth to hate those who have anything at all (the evil rich and such). It’s how they got an entire nation to hate the Jews for no good reason. They took control of the press (Fairness Doctrine?), and the gov’t took control of private businesses (hmmm…).

      anyone else see the similarities?

      yes Rusty, you are 100% correct, we may be labeled what we are not by those who are hell bent to bring America and those who love what it was built on to its knees and then chop off it’s head and serve it to the rest of the world.
      I realize you were making a statement and it was meant to be directed at how we will be viewed by doing what is right for the country, and so be it. I know I won’t be alone in my thinking.

    15. socialismo o muerte on April 29th, 2009 3:53 pm

      Hey to all the clowns talking impeachment…

      A two-thirds majority, 67 votes, would be necessary to convict and remove the President from office

      After Franken is confirmed, you will only have 40 Republicans in office.

      How are you going to pull this off?I think you bitter Repugnicants, need to get over the fact that your party is in shambles and we are on our way to socialism.hahahahahaha

    16. jason on April 29th, 2009 3:58 pm

      “kinda scary that obammy went to mexico and the swine flu started a week later don’t you think ?
      maybe the swine flu started in the white house !”

      Maybe since Obammy is a colored, he brought the disease back from Mexicana.Im sure that the white house will smel like collared greens and cognac after he is ousted.

      I shouldnt do this but I found a picture of SuperDave on another forum and I am posting the link to it.

      “…we may be labeled what we are not by those who are hell bent to bring America and those who love what it was built on to its knees and then chop off it’s head and serve it to the rest of the world.”

      Well said! One answer is with the Tea Party Movement, as a way of having our voices and points of view heard. Hopefully will continue to grow. It’s our own form of Hope and Change we’re trying to bring about.

      So in the spirit of George W’s post 9/11 stance: “you are either with us or you are with the terrorists”, let’s apply similar logic to the Tea Party movement, i.e.:

      If you’re not a Tea Partier,

      then you’re a Douche Bagger.


    18. Michelle Smith on April 29th, 2009 4:56 pm

      #15 If you like socialism so much, by all means then leave. This country was not founded on socialist ideals, and we do not want to start now. BYE!

    19. Susan on April 29th, 2009 6:22 pm

      Rusty – Brilliant idea! I could care less if anyone labeled me a “racist”…LOL. I’m not, but oh well…let the labeling begin :-)

      Brenda – I would proudly stand up and fight for my country until the bloody end! Who knows, the way things are going, it could actually come down to just that.

      We cannot, we must not let Obama and his socialist administration undo the democracy our founding fathers put together.

    20. Susan on April 29th, 2009 6:29 pm

      #13 – LMAO @ SUPER DAVE

      I wouldn’t doubt it since the swine flu comes from a pig :-)

    21. St Stephen on April 29th, 2009 9:56 pm

      Level 5…one more level and we don’t have to worry ’bout “photo-op” and all the QRM from the intelligible gibberish posts!

    22. Carpe on April 29th, 2009 10:10 pm

      Hey, but the good news is that scientists spotted the oldest object in the universe today!

      Bea Arthur’s dildo. Pistol grip 120 volt with a ground prong!

      They don’t make them like they used to, that’s fer sure.

    23. Marie Lannan on April 29th, 2009 11:15 pm

      SCARE FORCE ONE FIASCO: While the offical “COST” is 320,000 plus, how much did the disruption REALLY cost: business in lost work time and employee upset; how much for accidents on the streets and personal injuries; were there any heart attacts, suicides, premature deliveries or PTSD episodes.

      Calderal (or whatever his name is) needs to be booted NOW. AND the cost in dollars should be be paid by him, personally.

      Most important of all, DESENSITIZATION to danger: next time a possibly harmful plane flies by, it will be ignored, people will stay at their desks so an enemy can destroy more people/buildings.

    24. SUPER DAVE on April 30th, 2009 7:37 am

      JASON: nice picture! surely a boy like you could do better though.

    25. Rusty Bridges on April 30th, 2009 8:07 am

      #21, you falling for the swine flu scare? Influenza already kills 36,000 in US yearly.

      #15, socialismo o muerte, if you knew anything about democracy instead of sucking on the hind teet of the pig you would know that the House of Reps votes on the will of the people if they want to keep their jobs, not party lines. Douche.

      For those interested in telling your congressperson what you really think:

    26. Jason on April 30th, 2009 8:26 am

      “white boy bitches”

    30. St Stephen on April 30th, 2009 4:04 pm

      Rusty Bridges-

      Not really, but look at the reaction of (again)DHS Napolitano when she says that closing the border now would be like ” closing the gates after the horses got out”.

      If there were a bonafide flu pandemic, closing the borders would have to be a top priority. If this is in fact a bonafide situation, and she means what she just said, she has put the Nation’s security at an even higher more dangerous risk. That is why we need someone at the helm of that post that knows what they are doing.

      VP Biden’s response was more true to form re his opinion.

    31. Susan on April 30th, 2009 4:38 pm

      # 27 – buster

      I’m glad my pet name for Obama is catching on…LOL ;-)

      Osama bin Laden Barack Saddam Hussein Obama is also the equivalent of a stinking, filthy, squealing PIG with the “swine flu”. He is to blame for the recent outbreak.

      LMAO again @ SUPER DAVE # 24 and 28 ;-) I once had a run in with a Vietnamese slut over in Germany who accused me of having an affair with her Mexican husband. I wouldn’t have touched him with a 25 foot pole…considering who he was married to. Hated ‘em all ever since!

    32. dennisintn on April 30th, 2009 11:13 pm

      presidents obama/soros isn’t doing too well these days, are they?

    33. Rusty Bridges on May 1st, 2009 7:18 am

      #30 I agree.

    34. yoyo muffintop on May 1st, 2009 9:13 am

      #31 – you hate 3 billion people because of an incident with 1 person…your disgusting “pet name” has caught on, as you say, with someone who believes the President of the United States should be murdered and you’re happy…and you believe the President of the United States is to be personally blamed for the flu outbreak.

      Now what mental institute do you currently reside in?

      Would you consider yourself a typical conservative republican? I’d love to read your answer.
