Riyadh, Saudi Arabia - A Saudi prince who was so far up the Bushes' ass that he became known as Bandar 'Burning' Bush has been given the heave-ho as head of Saudi Arabian Intelligence.
Prince Bandar is credited as being the mastermind who ordered Ronnie Raygun to nuke down UFOs threatening Saudi oil fields after securing a 'confession' from an Israeli pigeon suspected of being a Mossad agent.
During George Herbert Bush's presidency Bandar rose to starry heights as Saudi Ambassador to DC while all the time using the privileges of the Diplomatic Bag to arm personal hit squads all over the world.
The Clinton/Gore years saw Bandar splash out on billions on US investments in a cunning tax-exempt arrangement brokered by convicted fraudster Marc Rich.
But it wasn't until the Dubya/Cheney Administration that the old soak got the global recognition that he craved with the publication of his intelligence-sourced facts and figures on Saddam's weapons of mass distraction.
Oh yes, for that alone he deserves a gong.
Tonight reports from the Saudi capital say Bandar's being replaced as the Country's top spook by a stuffed toy camel called Kamel, a present to the Saudi King from grateful Iranian imams.
Expect his next CV accomplishment to be a date with destiny in a cryogenically sealed tomb.
