Controversy Over NORAD Tracking Santa

Santa will have some extra security as he flies through the sky on Christmas eve: a couple of military fighter jets.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command added the twist to this year's animated tracking of Santa's reindeer flight from the North Pole.

But the addition is not sitting well with some child advocates.

They claim military jets have no place in the tracking of Santa.

A spokesman for NORAD says adding the jets was part of an effort to give the program a more "operational feel."

The military has been telling children Santa's whereabouts since the mid-1950s.
