    Honestly, Reverend, I think he wanted to make a joke about the timing of the picture taking. But we shall see. winston is a good guy. I think he didn't mean any harm, but I feel your pain.
    No I was not making a joke. No harm was done beyond spilled milk and an apology was issued. It could have been a much better PR event had the flight been announced but in the end no substantial harm was done.

    Was it stupid as **** not to announce the flight, YES. I bet New Yorkers would have been proud to see Air Force One flying around Manhattan. Speaking as a former New Yorker myself I know I would have been whom ever was President.

    I see your point. But I also see Reverend's point. We all react differently to stimuli. Thank you for clarifying what you meant.

    Next time they pull this **** I hope someone on the ground is standing with a stinger missile.

    Intent means nothing. One should at least notify Dr. Bloomberg.. you know... I guess his $1 salary gets him overlooked.

    Horrible planning, horrible execution... those responsible for the lack of communication should be immediately kicked in the nuts for incompetence.

    It should have been announced on tv and radio days before it was to occur. There's no reason at all for a photo op such as this was to be secretive. Many folks probably would've been happy about having their own cameras ready to catch a cool shot. But there's really no excuse for scaring the piss out of people, causing buildings to be evacuated, and people standing in the streets in shock and fear. Very dumbass thing.

    Just another instance of poor judgement on Obamas part. Not thinking things through seems to be the recurring pattern with this administration.

    Maybe the fear of that is why they didn't publicize it.

    It was not Obama that made this judgment. As Bkad has already pointed out it was an Army General.
