The launcher on the white house didn't shoot amraams, which is why angel wing pattern flares worked. Probably sidewinder/stinger or some sort of heat seeking variant, which is why they shot all four of them. If it was a laser or radar guided missile, like the amraam, it only takes one (thats what the F-117 used to take the down AC130). I wanted to turn the movie off when the AC130 shot down the F117's.. so retarded.
