They have already made it almost impossible for private aircraft to fly over “our capital, ” now they want to put a wire to avoid while you are looking out for fighter aircraft. Not mentioned in the article , but I bet they have a pretty good camera on board. I’ll bet they can read a newspaper headline from 10,000 ft.

I agree using two F16′s is overkill. What they do is come along side with one F16 and wave their wings and get you to follow them to the nearest airport for the shakedown. The second F16 you will never see as he shadows you in your blind spot. He is there to shoot you down if you don’t respond to the flyby of the first F16. Pretty effective.
