If you didn't know this was going to happen above Manhattan and you were in a tall office building, what would be your first thought?
That's a pretty big unforced error, Louis Caldera. We'll see if you keep your job as Director of the White House Military Office. Apparently Obama was furious when he was informed. This will be a nice test of accountability in the Obama era.
It was all for a "photo op," because apparently the White House Military Office has never heard of Photoshop.
UPDATE: After the review of the incident, Louis Caldera lost his job. Score one for accountability.
