Can you imagine if Bush had done this?
Its not hard to see how the idiotic decision to have “Air Force One get pictures with the Statue of Liberty” (just writing it I have to shake my head in disbelief at how absurd this was) spawned so many conspiracy theories. Some are more plausible than others and I have my own hypothesis and suppositions but that’s all they are. I’ve heard the gamut from the “Rogue pilot trying to warn us of the government’s plan” to “wealthy donors, maybe even Soros , getting a complimentary ride at our expense”.
So while everyone out there is content to put out these theories I will put forth a solution.
As we have no proof of any of this you can chose to believe either or dismiss either and your life will probably not change all that much. However isn’t this supposed to be the Open Administration?
Well, if it is then this can be easily solved. I understand, mostly from reading the Internet LOL, that all such photo-op flights are also used as perks and rewards to staffers and some of the B-list donors and their families who may not otherwise get a chance to fly on Air Force One.
To quell the theories and quite frankly because the White House owes us , at least us “New Yorkers”, a more thorough explanation of this debacle the list of the passengers on that Air Force One flight should be published. So the “open administration” should release the passenger list of those who got a ride on the plane. Sure that can all be doctored but if there is a cover up it will eventually come out.
Lets face it how can we have any confidence in a President that has no clue where his own dam plane is going or who is on it?
There’s one other thing. This was allegedly a “photo-op” so lets see the photos! The F-16 chase plane could not possibly take pictures from its vantage point so there had to be another plane somewhere taking the pictures. I see no evidence of it in any of the videos or pics that were taken of this incident. So lets have the White House publish the pics, after all it cost us over $300K to have them taken at least we should get to see them.
. If the Administration does that then and all these conspiracy theories will go away…unless of course..
