God knows, I hate to be skeptical about Bush and all the extremely non-political terror alerts 

so I'm trying really hard not to put on my tinfoil hat about The Cessna That Evacuated Capitol Hill (though I sure hope the Dems locked up their files when they left the office).


A small plane strayed within three miles of the White House on Wednesday, leading to frantic evacuation of the Executive Mansion and the Capitol with military jets scrambling to intercept the aircraft and firing flares to steer it away.

In the 3 1/2 years since [9/11], hundreds of small planes have flown within the restricted airspace around the capital - a 15 3/4-mile radius around the Washington Monument.

However, it's rare for fighter jets to be scrambled in response.

So, why now? Just asking....
