    PHOTOS OF AIR FORCE ONE BACKUP PLANE FLYING OVER NYC NOT TO BE SEEN BY PUBLIC - New York Post

    I guess that without the photos being released, people might eventually believe that it never happened and become folklore, since there will now be no proof...kind of like people believing we never landed on the moon ;)

    If they did use the pictures, the dittoheads would raise a fuss every time they appear.
  • bulletandpimabulletandpima Registered User Posts: 9,826 Senior Member
    I am betting in 5-10 yrs people will say it never happened and that it was made up by the media :eek:

    What is a dittohead?

    Rush listeners or to some people any republican (b/c afterall, all republicans walk in line to everything he says ;))

    Thanks for the definition, bulletandpima. It has been so long since I've been immersed in a culture of middle school name calling that I was no longer able to deduce it's meaning from context.:)

    Hang around here long enough for certain posters to decide which party you support and after that those memories will come flooding back...JK

    So this photo is like the F-22 Raptor-- the stealth plane that we'd see flying overhead, yet they's still insist it didnt exist??

    Think about this for a minute. This boneheaded action has essentially made it impossible for the Obama Administration to ever use a photo of Air Force One and the Statue of Liberty for anything. Any such picture would be an instant reminder of this PR disaster.

    The liberal media went nuts when VP Cheney wanted to have private meetings on energy so he could get information form industries about what was really going on. But when it comes to something that might make Pres. Obama look bad all of a sudden the Freedom of Information Act no longer exists.

    It's OK, Razor. The MSM will have TONS of photos of Obama's and Foot-in-Mouth-Disease Joe's little trip today to an Arlington Burger Joint. You know, to show they are "just ordinary joes". Wonder how much this publicity stunt cost the taxpayers?

    One photo op goes bad, just plan another...

    Huh? What does FOIA have to do with this? What's the information that's being withheld? You mean the photo of an airplane flying by the Statue of Liberty?

    So what you all are saying is now that people were outraged that the White House would spend $300k+ for this photo op, the White House has decided to instead have spent that $300k+ on NOTHING? Awesome..

    Phantom Air Farce

    Could it be possible that there are NO pictures and there was some other reason for the seemingly idiotic flyover? Let's get this straight, they flew a freakin 747 with an F-16 chase plane for low passes around Manhattan for publicity shots that won't be shown to anyone? Now I've heard it all. :rolleyes:
