Reminds me of when Xlinton put up a bunch of reprobate friends up for the night in the Lincoln Bedroom.

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?

These goof balls in the White House think they're playing many of us for fools.

Well they have been very successful in convincing 69,456,897 (and 365 electoral votes) that Zero is the real deal and is to be believed.

The GOP is going the way of the Whigs. Zero and the DNC is very very close to having an entire base of population that will be depending on the DNC for their goodied - THERE IS NO WAY THEY WILL BE VOTED OUT OF POWER.

Nobody said anything about the FAA “clearing military flights for air worthiness”.

LOL!  That's not me saying it, that's the White House's words.

They very reasonably didn’t imagine that the planned flights were going to go unreasonably close to buildings in a way that was guaranteed to cause mass panic — they assumed the US military knows what the he!! it’s doing and wouldn’t do something colossally stupid.

Unlike you, I don't fault the military who, for all intents an purposes, is doing it's job. The ultimate decision to do collosal stupidity of this magnitude, falls onto the president, and this decision smacks of the same arrogance and ego from the guy who built a Greek Colesseum to himself in Denver at the DNC Convention last August.  But don't let that fact smack you in the face while you continue to spin your wheels for this incompetent White House.

Hey, there's an idea. Perhaps the Obama administration should consider nationalizing the media, to ensure unbiased, truthful reporting. . . . Is a sarcasm tag needed here?

No, because the Congress has already brought up the bailout of the near-bankrupt media.

As if anyone is surprised by this.
The country is bankrupt, so spend over $360,000.00 to fly 3 planes (2 military) in a no fly zone.
Scare the living hell out of thousands of people, i am sure many are suffering flashbacks today.

Knowing full well that they would scare people.

But this president needs all kinds of face time. He still has not left the campaign trail.

We all know his priorities. Spend money that you don’t have to make yourself look good and the hell with what happens to the American populace because he is the one.

But it is okay now because he apologized and said it won’t happen again. (they must have gotten the shot that they needed)

They have glossies that they hand out to dignitaries and staff that ride on air force one. The current pic is AF1 flying over Mt. Rushmore, zero wanted a new one over the statue of liberty,

(you know the statue of the lady he is raping at this very moment and has been for 100 days)

Heads better roll and I'll bet an investigation of the budget line item charged will lead to the original requester. And I'll bet it isn't a military liaison officer either!

Yes, a total waste, especially considering that now they can never use any of the photos. Assuming, of course, that photos were actually taken for this “photo op.”
