Sulli asked a question in my comment section, i will try to answer. Is it true that Obama removed the flag from the outside of his campaign plane? Below is Obamas plane before the renovations. See the big flag? Perhaps when flying to dangerous countries this flag would stand out like a sore thumb and become one heck of a target? That was my first thought. This Is Obamas plane after renovations. See that little round red, white and blue thing on the tail? Kind of looks like a flag, kinda, but it is smaller, and not quite as noticible. I kind of like it.
