Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (SatireWire.com) – Arab leaders today said they were skeptical of George W. Bush’s latest assertion regarding Iraq: that his father left his wallet in Baghdad and the United States just wants to dash in with 100,000 troops and get it.
“I don’t know, I’ve forgotten my wallet before, but I just have my secretary cancel my credit cards,” said Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah. The Prince added, however, that he hoped Bush’s father, former President George H.W. Bush, did not lose any money. “I know Saddam, and believe me, if there was any cash in that wallet, it’s long gone.”
While dubious, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said the lost item explanation was an improvement over last week, when Bush insisted Iraq had been chosen as the site of the 2004 Republican National Convention, and the President needed to send in a “scouting party” to check out hotels in the area.
