"Let's Fly a Plane Through NYC for a Photo Op & Not Tell Anyone! GREAT IDEA!"
I mean seriously? Did the F.A.A REALLY think that NO one would freak out? Are you fucking out of your mind?
"I'd call this felony stupidity. This is probably not the right job for Mr. Caldera to be in if he didn't understand the likely reaction of New Yorkers, of the mayor," Townsend said Tuesday on CNN's "American Morning." -- CNN reports. WELL... It's a little too late now, don't you think? I hope they fired that guy.
So the Air Force One was taking part in a "classified photo op", which was a secret... except for the 8 million people that live and work there every single day.
It was actually going to be unnoticeable. AGAIN, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!!! If you were going to do this in a remote area, okay then I can understand the secrecy, but WHAT DID THEY THINK WOULD HAPPEN! I mean, use common sense here people.
GREAT QUOTE FROM NY TIMES:
""An F.A.A. memo last week said information about the exercise “should only be shared with persons with a need to know” and “shall not be released to the public or the media.” "
Now... in that situation, WHO exactly are the people who "need to know"? And it shouldn't be released to the public or media?! Until a plane flew eye level to their office on the 80th floor?!
Did they believe that people would just sit there calmly and not do shit? Seriously?
This makes me really angry. The fact that they don't even think to put something in the paper or on the news, they wouldn't even need to say WHY, just a heads up -- "Hey, there will be a plane flying really close to the buildings in NYC today, its a photo op, so don't freak out, its not another 9/11 okay?" No. Nothing. Something is better than nothing!
Well I hope people didn't actually get hurt because of this. I would really like to know WHY. Why would you even need a picture of a plane flying that close to buildings anyway? Are you trying to stage a fake terrorist attack? Like what is the reason behind that.. Who would even want pictures of that. Idiots. There is no other word! Well --there are, there are many actually, but I choose not to name them because I would just be cursing.
The boyfriend's knows someones wife who was working in one of the buildings that it flew by. She said that everyone in her office panicked, and her thoughts were "well I won't make it since all these people just ran down the stairs before me, so I'm just going to sit here and continue doing my work." I am not sure what I would have done. I think I might have tried to get out.. I am not sure, but that would probably be my initial thought reaction. I hope if someone got hurt that they sue those idiots for endangering their lives!
On a positive note, 2 more days until Friday :)
