An unarmed Russian Air Force reconnaissance jet flew over several government buildings and landmarks in the nation's capital Wednesday, including the Pentagon, U.S. Capitol, National Mall and the White House, ABC News has confirmed.
The flight over what is normally some of the most secure airspace in the nation was allowed under the Treaty of Open Skies that allows ....

I don’t even think this is a “Russian” jet.
Reported by ABC? I’m sure it was carrying a load of pink slime.

Yes. If this is an Open Skies Treaty flight, then it is routine. And, of course, more dishonest fake news from ABC.
I guess the Ruskies don’t have google earth?
Question is why is Russia doing it at this time while the North Korean confrontation is occurring ?
It’s time now to make up a conspiracy theory.
Something along the lines of... Russia has recently upgraded their military GPS information and tracking hardware/software and sent a spy plane over DC to reconfirm targeting information for ICBM and obtain hard data for newly accuratized GPS/TOI (Target(s) Of Interest) overlays.
Apparently, neither do we.
Or maybe we and the Russians and others are smart enough to know that Google Earth doesn’t tell you what’s there RIGHT NOW.
These flights have been occurring on a regular basis under the Open Skies treaty since it was ratified in 2002.
Not exactly news. Does ABC think that it overflew the White House to send a secret short-range coded radio burst to Trump?
Under Treaty this happens routinely.
The question is why does ABC think that its is to be reported like it has never ever happened before?
I’m sure this happens all the time and even under Obama but the The MSM would never report it, and no one would have a problem with it.
I have never seen evidence of that.
And guess what? We do the exact same thing to them.
Any one depending on the title in ABC "news" wouldn't know that.
It took three people to write that. They forgot to leave out the part about it being unarmed.
The dems, media and leakers are making it real hard for Putin and Trump to communicate these days. So Trump puts on a special tin foil hat and Putin flies a jet over the WH sending commands in signals only Trump’s special hat can pick up. Impossible for anyone to leak the message to the NYT. Trump pretends to watch Fox news and read adoring tweets about him that are delivered twice a day to distract from the fact that he’s listening for Putin’s commands at these times.
But that won’t stop leakers and the NYT. You can expect a news story (not editorial but NEWS) tomorrow on what anonymous sources say that Putin’s message to Trump MAY HAVE BEEN. According to the NYT crack journalists (aka journalists on crack), it’s probably that Trump’s staff have replicated the special tin foil hat by now and are hearing exactly what Putin is directing Trump to do.
And, Rachael Maddow has receive an anonymous package with a tin foil hat. She will put it on during tonight’s show and tell us live what commands Putin is sending Trump if Putin flies another jet over DC at that time. If there’s no jet, she’ll tell us what the message likely would have been if a jet had flown by.
The Ruskies can do it by treaty, you do it with a piper and watch how fast you end up in jail.
Lou Dobbs reported on this last night, he also reported that there were American military officers aboard as well. They also flew over Bedminster CC in NJ.
Yep, routine treaty authorized flight, perfect opportunity for ABC Fake News and warmongering Disinformation Propaganda.
