Obama said he wouldn't scramble the jets to get him. He will, however, intimidate other countries enough to threaten them to scramble their jets (and yes, Obama is some part to blame. He could have prevented this with a phone call, and surely knew about this before the jet was diverted).
Obama, I used to respect you. I used to defend you. I even used to think that you could, some day, live up to your Nobel peace prize.
I used to be so disappointed that my dear USA, "the greatest country in the world", didn't even try to pretend be the best country it could. That was before the Patriot Act. Before Citizens United. This is embarrassing. I am ashamed. Fear has ruined this potentially beautiful country.
