I agree. The FAA and the military were taking orders. It was Obama or whomever they perceive to be giving the orders from the White House. If they thought that it would cause panic, they were in no position to argue with whomever it was that gave the order. Therefore, it had to be the CinC or the person that they thought was above him in calling the shots.
Any judgment call of panic on their part had to be weighed against the consequences of not obeying the orders from someone above their paygrade.
There is no one with a paygrade above Obama now. He is responsible.

(It is good to be right.)
Right, and I won't fault the military who takes orders from this clown however convoluted it might seem. He's been in campaign mode ever since being Immaculated and I wouldn't put it past him or bozos like Axelrod to have dreamed this whole scenario up for a re-election campaign ad.
If he's gonna be genuinely furious, he should look the part, and not smile while he's being furious. Even the Toon was able to fake it.
