Photo-Op Fiasco: Update

By Brian | May 8, 2009 | Share on Facebook

First of all, here is the picture that F-16 photographer took of the Air Force One 767 flying over the Statue of Liberty. At least they got a good picture out of it. I’m told if you blow it up real big and look real close, you can see New Yorkers on the ground pointing at the sky and running in panic…

On the upside, Louis Caldera, the director of the White House military office who authorized this stunt, has resigned. From his resignation letter to President Obama:

I have concluded that the controversy surrounding the Presidential Airlift Group’s aerial photo shoot over New York City has made it impossible for me to effectively lead the White House Military Office. Moreover, it has become a distraction to the important work you are doing as president. After much reflection, I believe it is incumbent on me to tender my resignation and step down as director of the White House Military Office.

As the saying goes: No shit, Sherlock. Maybe he should consider a job in Hollywood Special Effects? On second thought…

    Whoa, a White House staffer resigned after screwing up? I figured he was going to get the Presidential Medial of Freedom.
