FAA Memo: Feds Knew NYC Flyover Would Cause Panic
Threatened Federal Sanctions Against NYPD, Secret Service, FBI & Mayor's Office If Secret Ever Got Out
Furious Obama Apologizes: "It Will Never Happen Again"
CBS News Interactive: Sept. 11 And Since Reporting Marcia Kramer NEW YORK (CBS) ―
An F-16 fighter jet trails a larger military aircraft over Lower Manhattan Monday, April 27, 2009, conducting a photo shoot that panicked thousands of New Yorkers who believed the city was in jeopardy for another terrorist attack.
Dozens of people evacuated outside 17 State Street after military jets were seen escorting a 747 in Manhattan on April 27, 2009.
A furious President Barack Obama ordered an internal review of Monday's low-flying photo op over the Statue of Liberty.
CBS 2 HD has discovered the feds will have plenty to question.
Federal officials knew that sending two fighter jets and Air Force One to buzz ground zero and Lady Liberty might set off nightmarish fears of a 9/11 replay, but they still ordered the photo-op kept secret from the public.
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.

Another one for the “What if Bush had done it?” file, right next to the “What if Sarah had said it?” file. Both getting rather thick since this dingaling took office.
but, Romans 13 says that if you don’t honor the govt then you don’t honor God...ick...
..why the long face Michelle, can't find a belt to go with that sweater?
They get offended if you joke about the size of the stimulus package?
Do they think no one should question the actions of the U.S. government and leaders? Just let the politicians do whatever they want to do??
Now that is a joke! Surely, your friends have more sense than that.
acquaintances mostly really... and I would not count on them having more sense than that...
How about Matthew 21:12, John the Baptist.. and how often do you read.. “Jesus turned and rebuked them.” ? But then again not all Christians aspire to be Christ-like. Too many believe that we should be “nice” to everyone.
It was a “photo op” of Air Force One ordered by the White House for purely patriotic and essential reasons.
It had nothing to do with politics and Zer0 knew nothing about it, because obviously he does not care about politics and only cares about the people.
That’s why it was kept secret under penalty of prosecution.
If Bush had done it in his first term, he would never have gotten reelected. Period.
Didn't the planes on 9/11 do steep bank angles as you call them. It's almost as if it's mimicking that fateful day.
Maybe Georgie Soros was on board....the real Prez
Bush and Sarah would NEVER have done this, period.
Well, as a Christian, you know that we aren’t suppose to judge. However, we are commanded to resist and confront evil. If your Christian friends can’t tell the difference, then I wouldn’t bother discussing the matter with them.
I don’t have to tell you that a lot of Christians have lost their way. The Scriptures are clear and Jesus’ teachings are precise. But, we do have free will.
“Ok, heres my problem...I am somewhat condemned by other Christian conservatives (friends, people I go to church with, etc.)...for making fun of Obama and the dems....I am told (in not so many words)that I should pray for him (which of course I do...Good Lord!)...”
You are better than I. I don’t pray for them, as they are destroying the country intentionally.
I hear what you are saying. However, we must be in the world but not of it. We must render Ceasar his due—which is not only money. Christ turned over the tables and called out those who use the temple eggregiously and selfishly. We have regligious reasons to argue and complain about. We also have a country we love and wish to protect. Fighting comes in many forms. David used a slingshot. Joshua actually fought. And Moses, well, you know that story.
The Commandments speak of what not to do to your neighbor. 0bama is not our neighbor. We are Christian soldiers, fighting here all the same—with words here, and laws. Shall we wait to fight until there is no country left? This may well turn into the Last Crusade for Christ.
My opinion only.
threatened federal sanctions
add to that, Just who is threatened federal sanctions?
A way they can mock Capitalist Americans together
Zero and his buddies have no respect for the value of a tax dollar
Where were Michelle and Oprah?
Heck, why should Obama be furious since his whole existence is just one photo op after another.
This story is not going away. We all need to see to that.
