Flown on

Posted By on Fri, May 8, 2009 at 4:29 PM

The Obama administration guy who authorized the April 27 Air Force flyover over the Statue of Liberty has turned in his resignation, the New York Times reports.

Louis Caldera, who served as the secretary of the Army in the Clinton administration, apologized for the “distraction” that approving the flyover caused. He said in a brief letter to President Obama on Friday that it “has made it impossible for me to effectively lead the White House Military Office.”

I'd call that a delayed departure.
