They came by night.
A small band of masked intruders has broken into the secure White House grounds and has evaded capture by agents of the new Obama administration, officials said today.
The National Park Service is in pursuit of one very large raccoon and several medium-sized raccoons, who have been spotted roaming the grounds around the Executive Mansion and the West Wing, a spokesman said. — “Raccoons Invade White House Grounds,” Michael D. Shear, Washington Post
The squad is believed to be from the notorious terrorist group Procyon lotor. Intelligence records indicate that the raiders have excellent night vision, are strong swimmers, run as fast as 15 miles per hour, and can drop 35 to 40 feet without harm. No wonder they were able to penetrate the sealed perimeter of the White House grounds.
We trust that these mysterious malefactors will be captured soon. While NotionsCapital approves of President Obama’s Executive Order “Ensuring Lawful Interrogations,” we hope the raiders receive a thorough grilling.
