Clueless to the sensitivity of New Yorkers

Stupid is as Stupid does.

Barack Obama continues to be clueless to anything related to 9/11. This time its to New Yorkers near ground zero.

NEW YORK (April 27) - A Boeing 747 used by the president was escorted over lower Manhattan by an Air Force fighter jet Monday as part of a government photo opportunity and training mission, causing a brief panic among office workers near ground zero.

Workers from several office buildings poured out onto the streets before they learned that the flights were innocuous.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he was furious that the federal government flew the planes near ground zero.

Skip over this content Bloomberg said the flyover so near the World Trade Center site showed "poor judgment" and was insensitive. He said he was furious that the NYPD and another city agency were notified last week, but did not tell him.
If he had known, Bloomberg said he would have tried to stop it
John Leitner, a floor trader at the New York Mercantile Exchange Building, said about 1,000 people "went into a total panic" and ran out of the building around 10 a.m. after seeing the planes whiz by their building, near the World Trade Center site.

Sometimes you just have to wonder and pray we don't get attacked again with such a clueless administration.
