Air Farce One


I imagine that the planning meetings for this impromptu buzzing of lower Manhattan must have been surreal.

“Hey, I have an idea. Let’s fly some aircraft around at low altitude near the World Trade Center, for publicity or something.”

You think we ought to warn people on the ground?”

“Nah. In fact, I think we should specifically not tell people about it. Because of, oh, I don’t know, national security.”

“You know, if we use one of the Air Force One fleet, we can make it look like it was Obama’s idea.”

“I like how you think, son. You’ll go a long way in this organization.”

“Thank you, Mr Cheney.”
