Between this, and the fact that the suit is doing random things without Tony in it, I think Tony will get blamed for the attack or something. Then, SHIELD and everyone else in the world will actively turn their backs on him.
You might be right.
The Sentient Armor is definitely in this movie, probably as a side effect of Extremis, and the SA don't seem too friendly. So IM is probably blamed for the assassination attempt on Air Force One.
Also, about the helicopters: that's a surprise attack, so it's not like anybody (including Stark) is ready for it. It's three gunships disguised as news choppers.....news choppers buzzing Stark's Malibu mansion is probably a pretty common occurrence, so no alarm bells would be going off inside Tony's head.
