Fly-by debacle-why no global warming outrage?

A photo-op for Air Force One?Why?For brochures for prospective passengers?I can't seem to come up with a legitimate reason as to why this is in anyway necessary.And the bigger question?Why aren't the climate change freaks screaming bloody murder over the carbon footprint from this waste of fuel,the corresponding pollution,un-necessary warming of the atmosphere,etc.?And what about the logistics required to accomplish this seemingly innocent little flight?The manpower required to arrange it?What about the lost productivity from the un-necessary evacuations from the traumatized New Yorkers watching in horror?

We could go on and on about the detrimental fallout from such a huge PR gaffe.I do have one question.Who will be fired first,the fall guy in the White House responsible for the fly-by or the doomed techno-geek who allowed the Obama tele-prompter to screw up and make him look bad?I vote for the latter as that is far more egregious offense.More to come...
