Here’s the AP’s video of that “Air Force One lookalike” flying low over the city today. You can see why people were spooked. The Journal clarifies that the plane technically is a potential Air Force One — it’s one of the crafts authorized for Presidential travel. But the President was not on board. The Feds’ “photo mission” explanation is widely seen as unconvincing. We assume it’s a war on terror thing for which the secretive Administration is taking heat, just like in the old days.
