I’m sure there’s a whole series of memos and e-mails. Locating the exact source of the screw-up will be a challenge. My best guess is that there was just a disconnect between the people who knew the precise plan for the flights and the people farther down who were responsible for getting needed notifications out. It’s probably very standard procedure for any planned AF1 flights to be kept classified, except when it’s a flight involving a publicly-announced trip with POTUS, in which case a whole different set of policies and security measures are in place. Somebody near the end of the communication line probably did not have precise info about the unusual flight plan (i.e. that it involved locations and maneuvers likely to cause full-scale public panic if not publicly announced in advance), and applied the standard classification policy because doing so is clearly required unless a very clear exception has been ordered. Somebody higher up the line who did know the precise flight plans probably assumed it was so obvious that this required public notification, that he assumed that would be taken care of by people further down the line. Somehow, the info “this is exactly what the planes will do” got separated from the line of communication in which somebody orders somebody to order somebody to order somebody to make the proper notifications.

Yes, but I'm looking for the memo specifically mentioned in the article.

Democrat talking heads and politicians accused President Bush of being a cowboy, among other things. They squealed about his use of AF1 on September 11, 2001, for starters.

He would no more dream of sending his 747 with a military jet escort to buzz Manhattan and Jersey, than he would think of doing any of the other catastrophic changes that the Obama admin is perpetrating on the country.

This did not result in death, that we know of, like the invasion of the Branch Davidian complex did, but it is on the same order of arrogance.

Just horrible!

Has Michelle’s whereabouts been verified for tht time period of the flight? She said she likes to “slip out” and do “fun” things. I’m inclined to believe that someone important was on the plane.

“sounds like a legalistic liberal church.”

Oh no, quite the contrary. Just a small percentage of ignorant people...I only mentioned church, because I do go to church with SOME of them...there are others...it seems to be some of the Christians’(in general, not one church) mindsets out there. I think my church is wonderful, please do not misunderstand. I have been to bbbbbaaaaddddd ones before.

And don’t worry about me getting persuaded to that way of thinking....I’m a tough nut to crack. ;0) “strong-willed” is what my mother calls it....hahahah...

Well, here you go....some more joking about Obama for your friends.

New York City Flyover Pilot Revealed To Be Obama

"It has been revealed that the pilot of the President's plane that flew over New York City, the one that was accompanied by several military jets, the one that sent thousands of workers out of office buildings and running wildly in the streets, was actually the President himself - Barack Obama.

The President apologized for his actions and said he was sitting in the Oval Office reviewing some policy papers when a sudden desire to pilot his own jet came over him.

"I was so excited," the President said."....................

It’s not even clear if that reference is to a memo that was written before the flight, or one that was written afterwards in response to the widespread outrage. If before, note that it’s also not clear that the writer had any reason to believe to the specifics of the flight would involve anything likely to cause more than a few random calls from especially nervous citizens.

There are reconnaissance versions of the F-16 but none are at Andrews AFB. The closest RF-16s are at Richmond owned by the Virginia Air National Guard. Even if they had that plane they're not going to get very good pictures from the chase position.

"...This sentence is where the warning flag pops up..."

EXACTLY! That's why I think they intended to gage public reaction. If the govt didn't want to cause panic, they would have spoken to the gov of new york personally and not some junior aide, and let the public know, to PREVENT PANIC, CHAOS AND POTENTIAL HARM of the general public....(ie, the dangers of running down stairwells at 50mph) This aint good.....and if this is a sign of things to come, we are in big trouble.

“Something is really screwy with this story.”

I don’t understand what the photo op was for. Why did they need Air Force One and two F16s for a photo op in the city that doesn’t sleep?
