CAMP DAVID, Md. (AP) — Two F-15 fighter jets have intercepted a small aircraft near Camp David in Maryland, where President Barack Obama is spending part of the weekend.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command says the civilian aircraft was out of radio communication just after noon on Saturday. Fighter jets intercepted the plane and directed it out of restricted airspace near Camp David. The plane landed without incident.

A similar incident was reported last Saturday.

Obama is spending the night at the presidential retreat. He plans to head back to the White House on Sunday to continue work on a deficit plan with congressional budget negotiators.

    That’s the problem, they never do anything.. President Obama needs someone protecting him that’s really gonna protect him and his family.. I mean can he really look those who are protecting now in their eyes and see “LOYALTY??? He wouldn’t have these problems..
