Was it worth it?

$350k of your money not counting the public panic. Was the picture worth it?

  • You know,

    I'd be happy to teach someone at the whitehouse to photoshop. . .for free. Just cover my gas and hotel while I'm there.

    But this is eactly why our country is broke. No idea how to prioritize with finances.

    Air Force One NYC Flyover


    This picture is among the 146 photographs of the Air Force One photo-op released by the Department of Defense. On April 27, Air Force and Air Force One fighter jets flew over New York City's financial district, frightening many New Yorkers who were unaware of the photo shoot.

  • Old news

    No, today's news. They wouldn't release the pictures until today. Thanks for keeping up, though.

  • ANON 1:59AM


    I am certain that if YOU were in NYC at the time of this photo shoot and saw a jumbo jet flying over the area where the World Trade Center Towers once stood, you would have been screaming a la Chicken Little! I also know you'll deny this, because as an anon you can pretend to be an ITG--Internet Tough Girl (or guy)!


    People freaked when they saw Air Force One flying over head, because airplanes are RESTRICTED from the airspace over lower Manhattan--it's not a "common occurrence!!!"

    Thanks for proving that the government assumption that most people are sheep with limited or no attention span, is unfortunately truthful!

    if you ever notice a lot of controversial government information gets released, voted on, and/or passed on Friday afternoons/evenings (ie: Cap & trade bill) as it's the slowest network news day, and people are more preoccupied with Happy Hour and their weekend plans!

    You may think it's "old news," but the point is that the government was fighting the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to AVOID releasing these photos, until the majority of their sycophants would treat it as "old news!" LOL
