I am speechless, apart from the word "unconscionable," so I'll just excerpt this story from WCBS television in New York:
CBS 2 HD has discovered the feds will have plenty to question.ARE THERE SOME Ford Administration holdovers still at the Pentagon and the FAA?
Federal officials knew that sending two fighter jets and Air Force One to buzz ground zero and Lady Liberty might set off nightmarish fears of a 9/11 replay, but they still ordered the photo-op kept secret from the public.
In a memo obtained by CBS 2 HD the Federal Aviation Administration's James Johnston said the agency was aware of "the possibility of public concern regarding DOD (Department of Defense) aircraft flying at low altitudes" in an around New York City. But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor's office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out.
