File Under "What Were They Thinking?"

So, for a classified photo-op, whatever that is, the White House Military Office allowed a 747 and 2 fighter jets to do a low altitude fly by of downtown Manhattan.

As I said, it was classified, so the residents of NYC were not warned.
“Everybody panicked,” said Daisy Cooper, a Merrill Lynch worker in Jersey City, who lost a nephew on 9/11. “Everybody was screaming and we all ran downstairs. I’m devastated…Everybody was running, we didn’t know why we were running. We just knew it was a plane, there we go, 9/11 again.”
I hope no one had a coronary or a stroke in the panic.

It's the sort of photo-op
that can make your heart just stop.
