These incidents, although not highly reported, are possibly setting the stage for a future Obama assassination “event” from the air. Whether or not a future Obama assassination "event" will involve an alleged suicide pilot is yet to be determined, but the 2012 Democratic National Convention will be held in an outdoor football stadium. If this particular scenario is indeed being planned, it is likely that hundreds if not thousands of Obama supporters will perish but Obama will come away unscathed.

Reno Air Races Deja Vu?
On September 16, 2011, a plane inexplicably crashed into the crowd at the Reno Air Races. Although authorities stated that the 74-year-old pilot lost control of his World War II-era plane and accidentally crashed it next to the VIP section killing 11 and injuring 69, what really happened on that day is still a mystery. Just prior to the crash, the plane was photographed with no pilot inside. Although it has been reported that the plane's seat broke and the pilot slipped out of the cockpit, it is much more likely that the crash was in fact a beta-test for future kamikaze-like terror events. As with the terror attacks of 9/11, it appears that the plane in question was indeed a remote controlled drone.

Abstract: For the third time this weekend, U.S. jet fighters on Sunday intercepted a small private plane that violated restricted airspace in the area of Camp David, Maryland, while President Barack Obama stayed there, the North American Aerospace Defense Command said.
Two F-15E fighters under NORAD control intercepted a Cessna 182 civilian aircraft on Sunday morning and led it out of the temporary restricted area, according to a NORAD statement. The Cessna landed at the Carroll County Regional Airport, the NORAD statement said.
On Saturday, two similar incidents occurred involving other aircraft that violated the restricted area around the presidential retreat, a NORAD spokesman confirmed. There was no extra security threat involved in any of the incidents beyond the violation of the temporary restricted area.
Authorities attribute the multiple violations to the temporary expansion of restricted airspace around Camp David when Obama is there.

Camp David area this weekend was scheduled to last from noon Saturday until 6

Title: U.S. Warns On Small Planes, But Says No Plots Known
Date: September 4, 2011
Abstract: U.S. officials say terrorists could try to use small aircraft in attacks, but have no specific information that such a plot is in the works, according to a new notice distributed by federal officials.
"Violent extremists with knowledge of general aviation and access to small planes pose a significant potential threat to the Homeland," according to an intelligence bulletin issued by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI.
But according to the alert, U.S. officials "do not have current, credible information or intelligence of an imminent attack being planned against aviation" by al Qaeda or its affiliates.
In the alert, which was obtained by CNN, officials say as recently as early 2011, al Qaeda was considering options for targeting aviation "possibly believing such operations would have a greater impact than other types of attacks." Among the strategies al Qaeda members have discussed are using a private aircraft to carry explosives, finding a Western operative who could easily travel to the United States or Europe to get flight training or renting private planes for attacks, "believing supervision would be lax due to the large number of private aircraft."
The bulletin was issued to state and local law enforcement agencies on Friday, a little over a week before the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington. Al Qaeda operatives killed nearly 3,000 people in those attacks by hijacking four commercial airliners and turning them into missiles, and some of the terrorists had received flight training in the United States.
Matthew Chandler, a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security, said although there is no specific intelligence about a plot, alerts are regularly shared with law enforcement partners on "evolving tactics that could be used by violent extremists to carry out attacks against the United States." He noted al Qaeda and others have targeted aviation since the 1990s and persist in seeking aviation training.Chandler said the bulletin is intended to "highlight the need for continued awareness and vigilance" (CNN, 2011).
Title: F-16 Jets Intercept Small Plane As Obama Leaves Los Angeles
Date: May 13, 2012

Abstract: Two F-16 fighter jets intercepted a small private plane that violated restricted airspace Friday as President Barack Obama was about to depart from Los Angeles International Airport aboard Air Force One, authorities said.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command scrambled the two jets that intercepted the Piper 28 aircraft over northeast Los Angeles at approximately 9:45 a.m. PDT, and followed it until it landed about five minutes later and was met by local law enforcement, NORAD said in a statement.
The Piper landed at the small airport in El Monte about 15 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, local police Lt. Dan Burlingham said.
The pilot, who was flying alone, was detained by police until Secret Service Agents arrived, he said.
After questioning the man and searching the plane, the Secret Service allowed him to refuel and leave the airport, Burlingham said.
"It appears, as far as we know, that it was just a mistake," Burlingham said.
He did not know the pilot's identity or any other details about him. It was not clear from what airport he had taken off, but it was not El Monte, Burlingham said.
NORAD spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Bill Lewis in Colorado declined to say where the F-16s were based.
"They post up these flight restrictions and NORAD's responsibility is to enforce them," he said. "If the aircraft is unresponsive or wanders into restricted airspace, we have a set of procedures to follow."
Obama departed from Los Angeles the morning after a fundraising visit where he raised $15 million -- a record for a single fundraiser -- at a dinner with some 150 Hollywood donors at the home of George Clooney.
A similar scenario occurred at the end of an Obama Los Angeles visit on Feb. 16, when F-16 jets intercepted a plane that entered the airspace of Obama's helicopter, Marine One.
That plane was forced to land at Long Beach Airport, where police said they found about 40 pounds of marijuana during a search of the Cessna, and the pilot was arrested.
The Secret Service said Obama was never in danger (Fox News, 2012).

Abstract: An F-16 fighter has intercepted a small private plane that entered restricted air space for President Barack Obama's fundraising visit to Southern California.
North American Aerospace Command issued a statement saying the single-engine Cessna was intercepted shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Title: NORAD Intercepts Two Planes Flying Over Chicago

Abstract: In separate incidents, two small planes flying over Chicago on Saturday were intercepted by an F-15 fighter under the direction of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).
There is a temporary flight restriction while the First Family is in town for the weekend.
One plane, a Cessna 172, was escorted from the restricted area around 4:30 p.m. without incident. The pilot was directed to contact the FAA for further instructions.
Another plane, described as a small single aircraft, was escorted without further incident at approximately 10:45 a.m.
NORAD’s mission – in close collaboration with homeland defense, security, and law enforcement partners – is to prevent air attacks against North America, safeguard the sovereign airspaces of the United States and Canada by responding to unknown, unwanted and unauthorized air activity approaching and operating within these airspaces, and provide aerospace and maritime warning for North America, the release said. NORAD may be required to monitor, shadow, divert from flight path, direct to land and/or destroy platforms deemed a potential threat to North America.

Kenwood neighborhood (CBS Chicago, 2012).

Abstract: Two fighter jets scrambled Tuesday after two small aircraft violated airspace restrictions in place for the U.N. General Assembly gathering of world leaders close to the time President Barack Obama was speaking.
North American Aerospace Defense Command spokesman John Cornelio said the F-22s intercepted the small planes during two separate incidents over New Jersey around 11 a.m.
The Federal Aviation Administration said the pilots did radio for permission to enter the airspace. It took one plane 20 minutes to exit and the other 14 minutes.
They were forced to land at Central Jersey Regional Airport.
The FAA will investigate before deciding whether to punish the pilots.
FAA spokesman Jim Peters said the temporary no-fly zones were established around the New York City area because of the U.N. meeting (Fox News, 2012).
