Washington DC - "Sure knocks the spots off that dead Libyan despot Muammar Gaddafi's Amazonian Guards," a source close to President Obama's security detail said today as news of next week's security deployment broke.
"As for their resemblance to the fictional NCIS Mossad Liaison Officer, sure, why not? It's gotta be the top rated cop drama in over 100 countries."
News that a specially recruited team of Ziva David dead ringers will be in charge of G8 statesmen's personal security at the summit in Northern Ireland next week has been welcomed on both sides of the Pond.
Brit Prime Minister David Cameron hosting the 17-18 June meeting is well known to have become the show's fan ever since sultry Chilean actress María José de Pablo Fernández - a.k.a. Cote de Pablo - joined the NCIS lineup in Season 3.
Last year a well-reported matrimonial spat involving David Cameron was apparently traced to a 'I Love Ziva' tattoo on the PM's lower lumbar region, soon to be dubbed a 'tramp stamp' by furious wife Samantha.
Downing Street aides reckon Mrs C is still furious about that and will be boycotting the G8 Wives mini-summit in protest at her husband's infatuation.
Yeah, big deal...
Other major G8 fans apparently include Russia's Vlad 'The Impaler' Putin, a legendary soft-touch for dark haired Alpha females [think rhythmic gymnast/body contortionist and New Russia politician Alina Kabaeva], and Canadian PM Stephen Harper.
Late last year these heads of government gave the nod for around 200 of highly skilled female operatives with more than a just a passing resemblance to NCIS super star Cote de Pablo to be on 24/7 patrol at the Lough Erne golf resort hosting the meeting.
Can't wait for Season 11 when Ms David gets to meet the US President and advise his security detail on some forthcoming plots.
