If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire...The A-Team.
Obama had a problem. No one else could help. He knew where to find The A Team, at Langley. He hired The A Team.
The A Team is The Al-Qaeda Team, the Arab Bureau of the CIA and MI6.
And the plot today is more cheezy than any scriptwriter of The A Team could ever dream of.
That plot focuses on a broken President of the USA. He came into office promising the American people that he could fix it. Instead he bailed out the banks with trillions, and now the bloated banks are coming back for more. He is allowing Mexico to invade the Southern states, and allowing Wall Street to write up laws that fleece the American people further, and continuing wars in Afghanistan and now Pakistan. He is in real trouble with the American people. His CIA mask is slipping.
But then he remembered that a few people have published articles that suggested that a terror attack, and at least a threat, could persuade the American people to look up to him again, to see him as a protective father figure, as they had done in 2008.
So in the last month rumours were created that Europe was going to be blown up by a mysterious Abdul Jabbar.
And now, just in the nick of time, with just three days to go before the mid-term elections, the broken President is handed a golden opportunity to remind the American people that, despite his undying loyalty to Wall Street and his paymasters, he is actually a neat kind of guy. A printer with an assumed explosive device is sent nearly half way around the world, and is discovered after a tip-off with what was described by a BBC reporter today as "very specific intelligence" from Saudi Arabia (the Saudis of course having created The A Team for the CIA via Osama bin Laden). Immediately the Mockingbird Media goes into overdrive. Nobody had died. The threat of anybody dying from the device was minimal. But that didn't stop the Mockingbird Media. The discovery of this printer and other suspect devices has been headline news for hours. Planes bound for the USA were escorted by NORAD. Global panic is encouraged.
And then the broken President grabs the opportunity given to him by The Al-Qaeda Team with both hands and reads his script on TV. The world is once again safe, safe in the hands of the President.
Obama hired The A Team.
