I'll bet the TSA has something to do with this.
Have they no shame? Scaring little children like that.

I remember when i was in the Military we were not allowed to go downtown in military uniforms unless class A for important stuff.. Now you see police and military in combat dress everywhere..The reason I brought this up is cause i think its their way of normalizing the show of force within the community and that the Santa escort just another flexing of the government..
Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory.
Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.
What am I missing about the jet escort? Back in the 60's and 70"s we all watched Santa via the SAC radar. I even remember the annoucer saying stuff like this is not a test, Santa is on the way, no bombers will be scrambled to intercept. They had video of Air Command radar with the blip they said was Santa.
I don't think any jets can make the stop-and-go trip around the world in 24 hours - they will never be able to keep up with Santa and they wouldn't be welcome in most of the world's air space either.
