Obama Photo Op Freaks Out New Yorkers

How about some iconic shots of Air Force One and the Statue of Liberty? Let's just not tell anybody!
Low flying jets buzzing New York...what could be sinister about that?
The mayor’s office was told the jets would only buzz the Statue of Liberty once, and not fly over downtown three times, a source said.
A jumbo jet being chased by a F-16 fighter jets buzzed Lower Manhattan this morning, panicking New Yorkers, many of whom were forced to evacuate their office buildings. It was not a terrorist attack, however, but a photo opportunity for Air Force One, sources told the Post. President Obama was in Washington at the time, but the low-flying 747 circling the Statue of Liberty was one of the planes used as Air Force One, sources said.
How much do you want to bet that this footage shows up in the "reelect Obama" campaign? It's great that there's so little to do in Washington that Obama and his staff (what little there is of it) can concentrate on what's most important to him...yet another political campaign! Another view of panic from the ground:
