Lower Manhattan Residents “Sensitive” to Planes Flying Over

I had to leave my office at 10:15 this morning and stroll around Battery Park for a while. Reuters explains why:

An Air Force fighter jet and one of President Barack Obama's official planes on Monday flew low over the Statue of Liberty in an approved photo opportunity that startled some New Yorkers who have memories of the September 11 attacks. New York City officials notified some businesses but not all city agencies or the general public. People in New York remain sensitive to such incidents in lower Manhattan, site of the 2001 attacks involving hijacked airliners that destroyed the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.

We are sensitive? Well yea. At least it was a nice day to take a stroll.

Maybe New Yorkers may understand a little more about how threatening the overflight of aerial spray aircraft are to rural residents as they offload their toxic load on top of us.

Many, many more people have died - and continue to die - prematurely as a result of this activity than those on September 11th 2001.

Yet there is no public call for the declaration of war against those behind the so-called 'green revolution'. (The big corporate players and rich of the 20th Century.)

Wouldn't observers think that Air Force One would be the least likely plane to be attacking any building ?
