From Scrappleface, Iran Offers Obama Advice After Air Force One Scare
In the wake of Monday’s panic-inducing Air Force One photo opportunity over Lower Manhattan, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sent a diplomatic message to President Barack Obama with advice on how to avoid such incidents in the future.
“Mr. President, the next time you need a photo of your plane near some major metropolitan area,” Mr. Ahmadinejad said, “there’s a way to do it without evoking the nightmare of 9/11 in the streets of New York City — it’s called Photoshop.”
“This is the same amazing software that has allowed Iran to multiply its defensive missile capabilities at a fraction of the cost of manufacturing and launching multiple weapons,” the Iranian leader said. “You can just take a picture of Air Force One in the sky anywhere, and another of the Statue of so-called ‘Liberty’, and Photoshop makes them as one. No one can tell. If you wish, you could have seven Air Force Ones flying in formation, strafing the infidels on Wall Street.”
Mr. Ahmadinejad added, “I would even invite you, Mr. President Obama, to personally fly your plane through the clear blue skies near Tehran where our agents on the ground could shoot it for you — the photograph that is.”
