    Border critic gets buzzed by F-16s on recent flight

    Border critic gets buzzed by F-16s on recent flight

    SIERRA VISTA — A recent international airspace incident involved a critic of the government’s illegal-immigration policies and two F-16 fighter jets.

    Glenn Spencer, head of the American Border Patrol, apparently triggered a security trip wire on Jan. 15 as he was flying from El Paso, Texas, in a Cessna 206.

    Glenn Spencer stands off to the side as Mike Christie prepares their Cessna 206 for a flight along the border on Oct. 19, 2007, at the Bisbee Municipal Airport. The airplane was flying very close to the U.S.-Mexico border on Jan. 15 when it was intercepted by fighter jets from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

    Kudos to USAF for being alert and on the job

    Given that Mr. Spencer said that
    • an inexperienced person was at the controls,
      they were flying by dead reckoning,
      they may have strayed into Mexican air space, and
      they were not in contact with the Air Force while possibly in an MOA,

    the Air Force was merely doing its job, and that's a GOOD THING.

    Anyone who thinks the Air Force was harassing Glenn Spencer for being the #1 air spotter of illegal aliens should give it a rest.
    One man's terrorist is another man's undocumented worker.

    Unless we enforce laws against illegal aliens today,
    tomorrow WE may wake up as illegals.

    The last word: illegal aliens are ILLEGAL!
