The more they stay the same, or so the old expression goes. Our northern most New Jersey reader related a sad story that underlined there is still a kernel of this old saw holding true even under the Obama administration.
According to the website Gadling.com, "An Air France flight from Paris to Mexico had to make an unscheduled stop in Martinique when US air traffic controllers notified the jet that it would not be receiving permission to fly over US airspace...on board the plane was Colombian Journalist Hernando Calvo Ospina."
Uh, oh, a scary journalist!
After all, "Ospina has written articles about the United States involvement in Latin America, and is currently writing a book about the CIA."
Reason enough to divert a plane from flying over American airspace. Who knows he might have been throwing anti-CIA fliers out the window!
