Someone okayed a "photo-op" for Air Force One over New York City and didn't bother to tell the New Yorkers about it.
You can read the whole story here.
Well, you can only imagine what they thought when saw a large 747 airplane flying low over their city with a fighter plane behind it.
1) With the state of the world as it is, who thought an Air-Force One photo op was a good idea (and a good use of money)?
2) Who would think flying a plane about the buildings of NY after 9/11 without telling any of the citizens about it, would be a good idea?
Yikes. Those poor people who saw it and were evacuating their buildings (thankfully, no one was hurt in the panic this caused).
This is one of the stupidest things I've read lately. Let's file this under the category of Bad Ideas to Begin a Monday Morning in NY. Sheesh.
