You can tell a lot from a reaction.

Does this seem like somewhat of a over-reaction?
I don't ever remember a large-scale reaction like this over a simple plane air-space invasion, even when a plane crashed into the White house a few years ago. Sure there are small-scale reactions localized, but the area of this one seemed a bit large.

Could intelligence possibly know something the public doesn't, like the weapons capability of some sort of terrorist cell? Maybe they were expecting more then just a small 2 seater airplane crashing into something.

thats possible, but i tend to think its just this administration keeping everyone on their toes. im definetly biased, but it seems all the clips they put on CNN are the ones with people running franticly - to convince us that some of our fellow americans experienced genuine TERROR today. luckily, it was just some ameatur pilots who made a very bad mistake, who wont be shown on TV except from a birds eye view as theyre arrested. naughty pilots! but remember, should they have been terrorists - people would have died! ... this.... could happen...... TO YOU.

im probably paranoid, but i wouldnt be suprised if those 2 pilots were on the clock - and knew exactly what they were doing...

edit: and nice little fighter jets to escort them.

I think it's real. No need to pretend nowdays that a lot of people would like to try and kill an american president. Not only that but because the threat is real then if you play a part in protecting the president and something goes wrong, you want to be able to show that you did your job well. In such circumstancess people prefer to err on the safe side.

that was actually my first thought when I heard this -- I didn't know about it while it was happening and got home later in the day so it was all over. But I do think that the government is party to a lot of information from all the chatter they hear that lets them know what different scenarios that could be tried.

back in 2001, some planes were hijacked and then run into buildings... at that time we were not prepared....

so since then, we can't take anything lightly... so if a plane, like the one from yesterday, flies somewhere that it shouldn't,

well theres going to be a response, such as the one from yesterday...
