You think they would have told the public about this in advance

Damn, that's not good. A lot of people have got to be extremely pissed, yet relieved. Pretty damn insensitive to not notify the public.

Maybe they don't want to scare the public! If you think about it.

If you think about it, hell even if you don't, they DID scare the public! The only reason not to notify would be because of security reasons, they could've said that they'd be staging an escorted jet for photo opps, they didn't have to mention it being an air force one, the reason for it, whatever, just that it'd happen.

Re: Air Force One Photo Opp Triggers Panic in Manhattan

seeing a Jumbo jet tailed by a fighter would be a scary sight over any city, doing it over NYC is really careless.

slightly off topic, that video over the statue of liberty made me wonder how many ways that video could be edited for conspiracy theorists

That is what I meant, although I saw a Jumbo take off from BWI about a year ago, and 2 fighters came swooping up and took position to either side. I have no idea what that was about, but it shocked my senses at first.

Re: Air Force One Photo Opp Triggers Panic in Manhattan

Incredibly stupid move. A selfish photo shoot by a "celebrity" President who has bigger things to deal with than sending NYC into a panic. From giving the British PM a gift of 25 classic American movies in the wrong DVD format and returning a Churchill statue that was a gift after 09/11 to his teleprompter mishap and this idiotic move, he's making the Office of the Presidency a joke.

I knew he had no real executive experience, but c'mon, have a little common sense, Mr. President.

Re: Air Force One Photo Opp Triggers Panic in Manhattan

This teleprompter thing is getting old, clearly you're still bitter about having voted in a guy into office for 8 years who could barely speak or read English. Obama gives a speech almost every day it seems and if you're expecting him to remember 20+ min of speech you're absolutely retarded. Sigh, thinking is probably not your forte Buster, perhaps it's time to quite life?

Re: Air Force One Photo Opp Triggers Panic in Manhattan

Read the article people...

It was a breakdown in communication at the NYC City Hall:

"On Monday afternoon, the Director of the White House Military Office, Louis Caldera, released a statement saying, "Last week, I approved a mission over New York. I take responsibility for that decision. While federal authorities took the proper steps to notify state and local authorities in New York and New Jersey, it's clear that the mission created confusion and disruption...Although the shoot was authorized, the normal system of public notification broke down, multiple officials said...A New York City employee has been disciplined for failing to pass on the FAA fly over information when it arrived on the employee's desk at City Hall. "

Obama didn't approve the mission, and it wasn't a "selfish celebrity shoot":

"A White House official told ABC News that President Obama was "furious" to hear about the plane incident. Caldera was called into a meeting with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina. It didn't sound like a fun meeting, the White House official said."

Anyways, dumb idea.

It's really laughable that all they have to hang on to right now is a mess up with a teleprompter or who he is shaking hands with this week. Laughable and sad at the same time.

You're really reaching here. The DVD gift was a dumb mistake, the teleprompter gaffe isn't going to happen more often than not (maybe the teleprompter operator screwed up? but that's besides the point). But those errors are pretty trivial in the grand scheme and they have nothing to do with this.

Re: Air Force One Photo Opp Triggers Panic in Manhattan

The feds knew it would cause a panic, and not only did they not inform the public, they threatened federal sanctions on the NYPD, and the Mayor's office if news of the photo shoot was leaked. WTF???

Great use of $328,835 in taxpayer money.
