Air Force One Borrows Former Governor Fletcher's Pilot

Did President Obama's pilot used to work in the Fletcher administration? That was our first reaction to the news that Air Force One had buzzed the Twin Towers site. Apparently, all the White House wanted was a photo op of the President's plane next to the Statue of Liberty to go on post cards. But no one bothered to tell Mayor Bloomberg or anyone else on the ground in New York City, causing many New Yorkers to flee in terror at the sight of the plane. Not since Governor Fletcher's plane took aim at the nation's capitol en route to President Reagan's funeral had an American politician's aircraft caused such a stir in the Office of Homeland Security.
Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
