Code Blonde -- National Guard Rushes for Jessica

11/5/2007 3:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jessica Simpson swooped into New York's JFK airport Friday night with a six-person military escort fit for a visiting head of state. But a National Guard honcho tells TMZ, he's looking into whether the troops were really doing their job -- or just star-struck.


We were there as Simpson touched down and strolled through the airport. We're told the troops got wind Jessica was in the airport and they rushed to search and protect as she walked to her Escalade. The soldiers, outfitted in fatigues, kept photogs at bay.

National Guard Major Angelo Agro tells us he investigated the incident, and says that the soldiers were doing crowd control -- at the request of American Airlines. Asked why six armed soldiers were needed to guard one petite blonde, we're told that it was originally a group of "two or three" soldiers and that the rest of the crew just happened to be walking out at the end of their shift.

Despite the soldiers' efforts, one of the snapper's cameras collided with a friend of Jess' mom, sending her to the pavement, shaking her up badly. None of the soldiers helped the fallen women -- instead they closely guarded their prize.

BTW, the terror alert has been elevated to yellow -- not to be confused with blonde.

Don't they have other more important things to do beside escort her ass. She's a celebrity but should not be treated any other way. I'm sure I'll get an escort the next time I go through the airport. What a joke.

Oh, please. They were just grooming the whole incident on file for the ensuing law suit! So she got knocked down...just get back up and move on. Don't sit there pretending to be disoriented with neck and back pain. And what's up with Mom putting her hand on her friend's forehead? Last time I checked, busting your arse on the pavement doesn't give you a fever. lol

God bless America!
