WHY THE HELL WOULD THEY DO THIS?

Why would the government fly a jumbo jet over the skies of NYC and make it look like another attack was about to happen? SO STUPID!

  • How did they make it look like another attack was going to happen. I didn't see it but I don't think the government would do something like that to cause a stir. It could have been a training exercise.

  • "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," said Louis Caldera, director of the White House military office.

    "I apologize and take responsibility for any distress that flight caused," he said in a statement, adding that he approved the mission over New York -- described by other officials as a photo opportunity -- last week.

    "I take responsibility for that decision," he added.

    The DEFENSE DEPARTMENT did that and DID notify New Jersey and New York..THEY CHOSE to NOT tell the people!

  • The way it was flying and how LOW it was flying it looked like itwas going to fly into a building! And you'd be surprised how f'd up the government really is.

  • The mayor of NY had the look of someone who had no idea what was going on and he was furious!

    if you read the article the intention was not to panic people, and authorities where notified about it beforehand. i'm not saying it was right for them to do this, but i am saying that it doesn't appear that it was intended to scare anyone, i do agree though that the public should have been notified, it caused too much of a panic and disruption to regular activities

  • If people knew than why were they freaking out? Why were they evacuating buildings and running around screaming like 9/11 was happening all over again? And why in NY? WHy not Kansas where there are no people.

    The local governments of Jersey and New York were told. They chose to NOT share the news with the people in their states which caused the panic....Call and complain to the local congressman, mayors etc....

  • if you read the article the point was to get a pic of the plane in front of the statue of liberty, don't think there is one of those in kansas....its the cities fault for not notifying people, the citizens didn't know authorities did so yes of course the citizens freaked, their local authorities should have notified them since they were notified by the govn.
