Washington - A $100 million research project allowing the President of the United States unprecedented access to read the minds of the country's enemies has suffered a setback.
The scheme, thought to include controversial Presidential 'X-ray' specs that see right through layers of human clothing, has been dubbed a Peeping Tom's Charter by US privacy pressure groups including Michelle Obama's optometrist.
Reports from Capitol Hill today said GOP Thought Police sources have lobbied hard to thwart the President's support for the project which is being trialed at NASA's Area 51, Groom Lake, Nevada HQ.
The pressure group says the scheme is nothing more than a shallow 'mental SatNav' scam that would allow Obama unprecedented access to people's private stuff.
"Yeah, like Miss Israel Yityish 'Titi' Aynaw's vital statistics and partner shagging list," Our-Man-in-Washington-AC/DC said this morning.
The Ethiopian-Israeli beauty caused quite a stir in the President's Y-Fronts the other week when he toured Tel Aviv on a state visit without his wife Michelle.
It's thought Yityish turned down the gobsmacked POTUS's attentions for a FULL TWO MINUTES before agreeing a midnight assignation at the Mount of Olives.
Next month she becomes a roving ambassador for Israel's Seedy Sign-Eye neurosurgery hospital in an assignment taking in Camp David, West Palm Beach and Guantanamo's Camp X-Ray.
