    The White House and the U.S. Capitol building were both evacuated today due to an unidentified plane violating D.C. airspace. The plane was escorted away by two F-16s. Full story here.

    I can see Hillary thinking---"here's my big chance and it won't cost me a dime. They run out--I run in." :cof:

    I wonder what a Stinger launched from a Helecopter (if so equipped) would do to a Cessna? I bet it'd blow the bajeezus out of it. :D

    a pound of C4? I think that's what the warhead consists of.

    Wish they would have said what the plane was doing there. Was it lost?
