UH OH: 8th WSJ UPDATE: Airplane ‘Photo Op’ Angers 9/11 Witnesses.

Evacuations were quickly called off, but many who thronged the banks of the Hudson River opposite Manhattan were found crying.

“For anybody who had gone through the World Trade Center, this was the most thoughtless, senseless thing they could do to somebody,” said a woman who declined to be identified. The woman said she had worked on the 13th floor of the World Trade Center’s north tower.

Good grief. What were they thinking?

UPDATE: An IndyMac connection?

ANOTHER UPDATE: A reader emails:

Isn’t Obama looking for ways to cut $100 million from the budget? What did this photo op cost? $25-50-$100K? Talk about your low hanging fruit…

Also, if this photo op was for the Office of the President of the United States, that’s one thing. If this photo op was for President Obama (assuming it wasn’t in conjunction with his official duties), I’m expecting a large check to be written from his campaign funds to the treasury.

Good luck with that.
