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.
