(Baghdad, Monday 28 June) In a widely expected move, representatives of the newly created Greater Israel today formally took over the running of former Iraq, under the leadership of Mossad's ex-Moscow bureau chief Iyad Allawi.
The hand over ceremony took place on the site of the newly refurbished Central Bank where President Bush's personal envoy Paul Bremer relinquished the keys to the vaults as well as the security-coded combination to open the safe.
Asked about what happened to the missing $11 billion, Bremer said he was unable to comment and directed reporters to CIA files containing Ken Lay's pocket calculator print-outs. A heavily armed convoy then escorted a partially sedated Bremer to the airport where he boarded a flight to the NATO meeting in Istanbul.
There then followed a majestic Trooping of the Color ceremony whereby Mossad's bagmen formally took over the reins of office in the newly built Jeff Skilling Presidential Palace overlooking the Tigirs and Euphrates.
A statement is expected shortly from the new administration regarding the handover of Saddam Hussein to the Iranians next week.
