    White House cancels Obama's African safari after plans are revealed to include a military SNIPER team 'to take out lions and cheetahs if they threaten first couple'

    By David Martosko In Washington

    PUBLISHED: 14:58 EST, 13 June 2013 | UPDATED: 17:02 EST, 13 June 2013


    President and Mrs. Obama are planning a trip to sub-Saharan Africa later in the month, but the White House has scotched a plan to include a Tanzanian safari on the agenda after a reporter revealed that a team of snipers with high-powered military assault rifles would accompany him in the wild.

    The Washington Post reported Thursday afternoon that the itinerary's dangers 'would have required the president’s special counterassault team to carry sniper rifles with high-caliber rounds that could neutralize cheetahs, lions or other animals if they became a threat.'

    The newspaper based its report on a confidential planning document leaked from someone in the administration.

    'But the White House canceled the safari Wednesday,' the report continued, 'after inquiries from The Post about the trip’s purpose and expense, according to a person familiar with the decision.'

    I don't know if they would eat a worthless tobacco smoked sack full of lying crap but I guess it is possible.

    The real reason is that his brother was threatening to hop onto Air Force One for a family visit to the White House. Obama wasn't going to have it.

    I don't think anything would ever be that bad. Billy Carter was simply amazing. Public drunkenness, public urination, the guy was an embarrassment.

    Theres also this little jem:

    The Muslim Lawyers Association in Johannesburg wants US President Barack Obama arrested and tried for war crimes when he arrives in South Africa on June 29.

    It submitted a 600-plus page document to the Office of the National Director of Public Prosecutions on Friday asking for an investigation into Obama's involvement in the Middle East.

    Group spokesman Yousha Tayob said Obama ordered drone strikes that killed innocent civilians.

    In terms of the Rome Statute, South Africa has the right to prosecute a war criminal on its territory, said Tayob.

    Researchers from New York University School of Law and Stanford University Law School recently released a report entitled "Living Under Drones: Death, Injury and Trauma to Civilians From US Drone Practices in Pakistan".

    They found that in four years Obama commissioned five times more drone attacks than former president George W Bush did in his two terms in the White House .

    The report estimates drones have killed between 474 and 881 civilians, including 176 children.


    The US Embassy in South Africa's spokesman Jack Hillmeyer said it had "no comment".

    I wish he would have went on that safari and gotten up and close with a lion lol

    But then again the poor lion would have to lick its own butt hole to get the bad taste out of his mouth

    I'm sure they cancelled due to negative comments on the cost. Foiled again, no free safari for the O's on the taxpayer's dime. I read that the entire trip will cost around $100 m.
