North American Aerospace Defense Command website showing Santa Claus delivering presents while flanked by fighter jets has some child advocates raising concerns about Saint Nick's new travel companions.
NORAD Tracks Santa, operated by the joint U.S.-Canada command, has provided children with information about Santa's whereabouts since 1955. In recent years, Santa updates have included animated videos showing Santa on his flight path.

arming civilian agencies and militarizing the poice wasn’t enough I guess
“”completely out of line” for linking Christmas with the military.”
Umm, NORAD is military, you dingbat.
(Sorry about that, video still works in Germany.)
Perhaps an odd question....but what evil doer exists....preparing to bring Santa and his sleigh down? Seems like there’s evil afoot here Watson, and we need to get to the bottom of this.
Kanner is nuts and needs a good psychologist and psychiatrist.
Good Grief !!!! Take me back to the 50s, when life was real, and I left cookies, a glass of milk, and a cigar on the mantle for Santa :P
Saw that. Saw mention of California, and Boston, and psychologist, and that just shut down their entire bitch-fest.
I would rather have Santa Claus escorted by F-16’s than be shot down by MIG’s :)
“Allen Kanner...co-founder of the Boston-based Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood...”
In fairness, it sounds like he is more anti-commercial than anti-military.
Don't tell Zero.
Not to worry. In line with his strongly anti-Christianity stance, Obama has this year instructed the jets to shoot Santa out of the sky the moment he crosses into American air space.
I bet the Marine Corps "Toys for Tots" gift drive must make his head explode. And he'd probably go cataleptic or something if he knew that military units often "adopt" needy families around the holidays so that the whole unit can contribute to their Merry Christmas.
Why Does Santa’s sleigh need an escort? I thought it employed stealth technology as well as being armed with AIM-120s for dogfights and a few AGM-65 Mavericks for those children who have been very naughty.
Except there is very little specifically Christian about the Santa story.
Santa Claus, elves, North Pole, decorated trees, flying sleigh, Rudolph, presents, etc.
What does any of that have to do with Christ?
very very very naughty
