    you want some other nation to scramble some armed jets to force Air Force One down at an airport of its choosing? In a country of its choosing? Because it suspects "something"?

      AF1 never flies without an escort.

      Let them try.

      BTW, no jets were scrambled in the denial of flyover rights to Morales.

      John Roberts? Melville Fuller?? WTF is the difference???.

    •  Is that what happened to the Bolivian plane? (1+ / 0-)

      Gee, I missed that.

      Look, the reason these European countries didn't want the plane landing at their airports is because they didn't want Snowden to hop off and end up in a transit lounge in their countries.

      Snowden is a big, stinking diplomatic and political mess. I don't blame them for not wanting to deal with it.
