As far as Barack Obama is concerned, September 11 never happened, all Muslim terrorists held at Gitmo are innocent, and there are no such words as “enemy combatants.”
So it was in that context that the White House gave the green light to Obama’s Air Force One pilot to buzz lower Manhattan with Obama’s Boeing 747 with two fighter pilots on its tail — all for a photo op!
Mind you, this took place on the same day that Obama declared the swine flu was “not a cause for alarm.” And I guess he thought sending a low flying Boeing 747 right near the spot where two commercial airliners took out the World Trade Centers wouldn’t be cause for alarm either.
Terrified New Yorkers scattered everywhere as the planes seared the sky above them. A furious Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said:
“Why the Defense Department wanted to do a photo-op right around the site of the World Trade Center catastrophe defies imagination. Had I known about it, I would have called them right away and asked them not to. It is the federal government, and they can do in the end what they please, but I would have tried to stop it.”
Of course, in the face of all the public outrage — Obama claimed he knew nothing about it. So once again, we have a president whose right hand doesn’t know what his left hand is doing! Obama has to be the most incompetent president in the history of the U.S. There’s no doubt about it. The scariest part is we’re only 3 months into his term.
