[quote:Anonymous Coward 42151486:MV8yMjc1NzQ0XzM4NzAwNjQzXzc5QkIxQUZB] [quote:blastercas:MV8yMjc1NzQ0XzM4Njk5NTM3Xzg4OTUwODIz] How would that have panned out had the US Navy or US Air force sent fighter jets to intercept the Jet Liner, so imagine two fighters flying alongside this airliner, they are hardly likely to blow it out of the sky, and the Captain of the airliner could have claimed sovereignty of the skies with whoever the Airliner was owned by Air France British Airways whoever, so therefore the fighters would be in breach of international treaties, so what else could they do without endangering the passengers and crew ........... what a strange dilemma Mr Obama must find himself in. [/quote] The fighters could use their M61 vulcan cannon to target individual engines, forcing the airliner to land. [/quote]
The US will not try to intercept NSA whistleblower Edward Snowdens flight, President Barack Obama said during his tour to Africa.
Obama announced that US will not be using military jets to go after Snowden, rejecting reports that America might force down a plane carrying the NSA leaker.
The president specified that the US will not engage in "wheeling, dealing and trading" to extradite Edward Snowden, adding that extradition will be carried out through legal channels.
