US Air Force Denies Existence Of Santa Claus

US Air Force Denies Existence Of Santa Claus”

A friendly Twitter feud between the Minot Air Force Base and Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri about which was better turned into much more when the official Air Force Twitter Account stepped in with an attempt to resolve the argument.

It ran a story with this headline: "Air Force confirms Santa Claus isn't real while chiding quarreling bases on Twitter".

The US Air Force (USAF) has publicly denied the existence of Santa Claus on social media, exactly two months before he dons the red coat to deliver presents around the world.

"Alright that's it! You guys leave me no choice! Santa will bring you nothing this year.becuase (sic) he isn't real!" the Air Force tweeted.

They quickly tried to walk back on their devastating statement in a series of tweets claiming they were only bluffing in order to get the two air bases in line. "Santa is real", it tweeted to the author of the article. The Air Force tried to intervene by tweeting that if they couldn't learn to get along, Santa wouldn't bring them anything because he doesn't even exist.

The note stated "early warning radar net to the north" picked up "one unidentified sleigh, powered by eight reindeer, at 14,000 feet heading 180 degrees".

The memo made its way into the hands Associate Press Reporters, who played along and ultimately sparked the decades-old Christmas tradition, The Hill reported.

The USAF also stressed that the North American Aerospace Defense Command would be tracking Santa's Christmas Eve progress, as it does every year.
