A White House cover-up?

CBS is reporting that the FAA was fully aware that that the low flying 747 my cause panic in New York City, "But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor's office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out."

Previously the FAA had said the flyover occurred because the White House wanted to update its files.

What does this mean? Did someone in the White House (Barack Obama) order this flight and then threaten federal sanctions to keep the fiasco from being traced back to the source?

Sending a low-flying 747 over New York City is just irresponsible, insensitive and stupid, but threatening federal sanctions to cover it up sounds pretty criminal to me.

Where are Woodward and Bernstein when you need them?
