...after making everyone feeeeeel good about lowering the oceans a few years before an election. No real need for it now. (But, on the other hand, didn't Hussein steer hurricane Sandy straight into the NY/NJ area in order to flood the entire region just to look good? I'm sure the CIA knew all along.)
