What a bunch of dumb shits. A 747 with an F16 on it's ass...in downtown New York. The pre-9/11 mindset of this bunch of dildo's is just mind-boggling...

Wonder how they would have responded if Patterson (he wouldn't be able to tell) deployed the NY National Guard and there was a force down situation?

Where's the photo shoot plane? Normally that's like in a Learjet or something. Surely they're not using an F-16 to shoot pictures of AF1.

How much does that cost? Who pays for it? Were those done during an economy like the one we are in now? How many have been done after 9/11 and had a failure to notify the residents of NY?

Costs alot less than the crap they have passed lately.
Those birds will be in the air regardless.
They could have notified them and they still would run away like retards.


I hope the coast guard calls me the next time a C-130 flys over.

Personally I wouldn't be too concerned about safety if I was on the ground there when this happened, but if I was high up in a building I might have another opinion.

I think a heads-up to the mayor would have been good. You can't tell me that if you were in one of the world trade center towers on 9/11 or anywhere near them for that mater, you would not be a little on edge to see "Air force one" fly around your building. This was a bull shit photo op or just a stunt to see the reaction of the American public. It just proves the lack of experience this administration has. What would have happened if this had cause injury or the death of someone? These people do shit without thinking about it and before long it will lead to someone dieing.

The last picture is of some super fucking early B17s, so it's got potential to have been done in "an economy like we are in now."

People are just blowing this bullshit out of the fucking water.

Over react much? NYC people were notified. Blame the mayor's staff for not communicating to him. As stated earlier -- it has been done before; the planes would be in the air somewhere at some point. I saw no report on the news of any loss of life or life threatening conditions resulting from the planes.

A blimp with a jumbo-tron teleprompter on it's side should have accompanied the photo shoot squadron......that way the good citizens of New York would have had no fears that it was anything more than just another stupid media stunt by the blowbama administration.

I don't but I am sure many New Yorkers did. Maybe they were notified and maybe they weren't? They mayor said he would have asked them not to do it if he had know. I read this quote in the NY Times. Pretty much sums it up.

How on earth can anyone justify a photo-op of an airliner trailed by a fighter jet near lower Manhattan post-September 11th?

Never mind the apparent lack of widespread notification - what purpose would a photo like that serve?

The Live Comments section in the WSJ claims at least one woman tumbled down the stairs at work trying to get out of her building.

So …. cancel panic mode….. and return to your regularly scheduled tax-paying activities.


I am sure someone on this board is smart enough to photo shop it for you obama. That would be the "green" thing to do.

I've got no problems with flybys. However, buzzing the skyscrapers in Manhattan with a giant 747 was probably not such a great idea.

We've got a lot of pictures of the stupid things, do we really need more?

What a wasted opportunity. I like the idea of the photoshopped image. Publish the picture clearly labeled as "Image digitally reconstructed to promote a new GREEN agenda" and you have yourself a political brownie point. Scare the shit out of New Yorkers and you have yourself a political snafu. Do they think ANYTHING through?

True story. I just intercepted a memo that said Obama was a board member of dfwstangs.net. The memo stated, "Watch how pissed those [email protected]#$ers will get if I do a fly by in downtown NYC."

A friend of a coworker works up in NYC for some investment firm.

He said the building's security guard just came running into their offices and yelled "OMG, there are planes all over the place, get the hell out of here!!!' and then ran out. It was like mass hysteria from he said.

It sounded hilarious to me.

All of these people making jokes and saying these people are pussies, etc disgusts me. If you lived through the events of 9/11 up there and were not warned about this you would freak out too. Tragic events and reminders never leave you, they only bring out fear and sadness. Have some compassion.

I was no where near NYC that day, but i remember watching it live on TV as it happened. I think this stunt was a total bonehead dumbfuck idea, but then again, that seems to be the current administration's M.O., so i guess it's understandable. Still makes me shake my head in shame though.

Cost

Looks like this cost tax payers around 325,000. Not to mention the carbon foot-print this left. I still say it could have been photo-shopped for nothing.

I could care less about a carbon foot-print, hell I did a nice smokey burnout to celebrate earth day. I just find it hypocritical that this man is so concerned about being green and yet instead of using modern technology he fly's his ass all over the country burning fossil fuels and spending more money then any president in history.

not only was this a bad move because of the whole 9/11 thing. (somebody should've alerted the media so at least people in the area would know that it wasn't another terrorist on a plane issue), but it was also a very stupid thing considering the economic climate we're in. i don't know why anyone cares to see air force one flying around. it's just a boeing 747. if they really wanted a photo of the plane flying, why couldn't they just take some pics on the president's next scheduled flight? at the very least it was fiscally irresponsible and on the upper end, a spit in the face of those who were there during 9/11. i can only imagine how scared everyone was, especially considering several buildings were evacuated from what i heard on the radio.

FAA Memo: Feds Knew Flyover Would Cause NYC Panic
Threatened Federal Sanctions Against NYPD, Secret Service, FBI & Mayor's Office If Secret Ever Got Out


NEW YORK (CBS) ―

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.

"To say that it should not be made public knowing that it might scare people it's just confounding," Sen. Charles Schumer said. "It's what gives Washington and government a bad name. It's sheer stupidity."

The flyover –– apparently ordered by the White House Office of Military Affairs so it would have souvenir photos of Air Force One with the Statue of Liberty in the background –– had President Obama seeing red. He ordered a probe and apologized.

"It was a mistake. It will never happen again," President Obama said.

The NYPD was so upset about the demand for secrecy that Police Commissioner Ray Kelly vowed never to follow such a directive again and he accused the feds of inciting fears of a 9/11 replay.

"Did it show any insensitivity to the psychic wounds New York City has after 9/11? Absolutely. No questions about it. It was quite insensitive."

The cost of the frivolous flight was about $60,000 an hour and that was just for Air Force One. That doesn't include the cost of the two F-16s that came along.

The mayoral aide who neglected to tell Mayor Michael Bloomberg about it was reprimanded.

I can think of nothing more symbolic than hordes of American citizens running in abject terror away from Air Force One.

Hmmm, so Obama didn't order the fly by. He's upset that it went down or that word wasn't spread about it. The mayor assistant was reprimanded. Did anyone else catch that??? Don't blame him if he didn't order up the flight/keep it secret BS.

It's not hypocritical when the shoe is on the other foot. Come on Danny, haven't you been paying attention?


Everything the Bush Administration did was Bush's fault. Everything Obama did (including spending), is Bush's fault. That's straight from Juiceweezl's mouth.....

No, just most of it. Oh, and he didn't get blamed or have to answer for squat until his second term. He got a free pass right away.

Because I did and do now blame Bush for so much? Try again. Bush had a free pass for a long, long time. Obama won't even get a chance from you guys and many others. You guys should come out of the closet once in a while and see what it's like in the light.
