NORAD Gets Trolled over ‘Santa Tracker’ [POLL]

Overreaction or legit complaint, you decide.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command has drawn fire from a children’s advocacy group over its annual ‘Santa Tracker.’ After releasing a teaser for the tracker on Youtube, NORAD was accused of bringing ‘violence and militarism to a beloved tradition’ by the Boston-based Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood.

The video shows Santa being flanked by two fighter jets as he skips around the world dropping off the goods. This is nothing new for NORAD, who have depicted Santa flying along side fighter jets since the 1960’s.

U.S. Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a NORAD spokesman said in a press release:

‘We really do feel strongly that it’s something that is safe and non-threatening, and not something that would negatively impact children. In fact, we think that it’s a lot of fun.’

He adds the fighter jets are unarmed, and what looks like a bomb under the jets is only the fuel tank.

NORAD’s ‘Santa Tracker’ drew 22.3 million unique visitors to it’s web site last year.
