SECRET Service spooks are disguising themselves as FARMERS to protect Barack Obama from terrorist threats at the G8 summit.
They have even bought a fleet of TRACTORS ahead of the US Presidents arrival in Northern Ireland tomorrow for the two-day meeting.
The agents plan is to pose as local farmers in the sprawling fields around the five-star lakeside hotel complex hosting the huge event.
But locals near the Lough Erne resort reckon it will not take any potential terrorists long to spot the spooks as their sparkling tractors are all brand new.
G8 US Secret Service 'farmers' Incognito ... how spook might lookOne said: They reckon the vehicles will let them patrol the fields around the hotel unnoticed but theyll stick out like sore thumbs.
Its comedy gold really, like something out of Father Ted.
More than 200 US Secret Service agents with special diplomatic immunity to shoot anyone they suspect of being a threat will be protecting Mr Obama during his visit to Co Fermanagh.
Special forces units from the US Navy Seals some said to be drawn from the team that killed Osama Bin Laden in 2011 will patrol the waters of Lough Erne.
A six-doctor medical crew will also accompany the President, who is due to touch down in the Presidential jet Air Force One in Belfast tomorrow morning.
From there, he will be whisked away to the venue in his £1million bomb-proof Cadillac.
Dubbed The Beast, it has 8in-thick armour-plating on its doors, puncture-resistant tyres and tear-gas cannon.
Crack British SAS troops will also be at the summit to guard PM David Cameron, Russias Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Frances Francois Hollande, along with other world leaders.
And there will be a huge police presence. Around 4,000 officers have been drafted in from across the UK to bolster the 5,000 cops from Northern Ireland on duty.
An anti-summit rally attended by around 1,500 people passed off peacefully in Belfast yesterday although police had to step in to prevent a potential clash with Union flag protesters.
The cost of protecting the Obama Presidency is overwhelming and probably unsustainable.....if he continues to use AF1 for campaign trips and take family and entourage on vacation trips to Africa costing a reported $80 to 100 million dollars of taxpayer money. Congress must address this Third World thievery and de-fund AF1 and other unnecessary trips abroad NOW! This is reprehensible of an elected servant to misuse money entrusted to him...It is a crime and deserves a just punishment....Obama is not above the law.
it’s just a way to funnel brand new farm machinery to the area without congress havign to approve funding.
Is Moochie going to bring the tractors back to use on her garden
That the Secret Service has been reduced to....
Imagine how many of those protectors could be replaced with just one Gurkha
A comment at site said the tractors will probably end up in the Middle East.
If the one ever gets the courage to visit a NASCAR track, will the SS field a race car?
I think the host country should be responsible for his security, especially on that African tour.
it will not take any potential terrorists long to spot the spooks as their sparkling tractors are all brand new.
Just goes to show how stupid Obama thinks ALL farmers are and how dumb Obama actually IS!!
It would bankrupt them lol.
compare what obama needs when traveling, and G. Bush had to rescue his SS agent that was stopped from entering the luncheon building with him....This WH is a bunch of cowards that fear everyone..
Anybody on a tractor in a dark suit is going to look out of place.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAhahahahahahahahahaha! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Seriously - it doesn't matter fi they're in their best LL Bean outfits - they're going to be easy to spot. If they're not working the fields, they're made.
Who would have thought: Tractors guarding a manure spreader!
Yeah, they are so damn clever . . . not!
True story. After Carter was elected president, he appointed our local congress critter Bob Bergland as Secretary of Agriculture.
I was working my way through college driving taxicab in Moorhead, Minnesota, probably the key city in the district. VP Fritz Mondale comes to town to stump for his fellow Minnesotan picked by the party to replace Bergland with a special election coming up.
This is during a typical upper midwestern winter. The secret service comes to town with their New York designer suits and shiny late model cars. They were about as hard to spot as giraffe in a monkey cage. So, I drive around the street with my window open, honking at them and yelling "Welcome to Minnesota!"
They call the dispatcher to complain and she calls me. "Just tell them we're a friendly town," I suggested. "I did," said. "Everybody had a good laugh except the secret service."
Secret Service agents with diplomatic immunity who can kill anyone the perceive as a threat?
This president is out of control spending too much money using too much power.
Nah...just the latest "re-boot" of a '70s TV series...
You aren't just good; you're damn good!
“Tractors are so dumb!” Mater
Wait until they visit Venice..
Gondaliers R US
They will be most inconspicuous in the bog fields of Ireland.
You beat me.
It’s hard to pick up hookers with a tractor
If a Presidential tour costs $100M of taxpayer dollars and carries so much risk... maybe it’s best to keep Skippy home.
If only Gov’t made decisions like a private corporation; as in what is the ROI for this expense? And for such an exhorbitant expense will the CFO approve it?
ROI = Royal Obama Immaculate
Green Acres is the place to be. Farm livin' is the life for me.
You aren't just good; you're damn good!
I do my best..... ;-)
My uncle would sell them a nice vintage MF 35 gas powered tractor with a new governor to take over to try to blend in.
If the picture of the tractor you posted is what they ordered, that is about a $50,000 tractor, easy, maybe more.
I couldn’t find out which tractors they ordered. That pic was from an Irish website, who probably didn’t know either.
Obama has brough Change alright.
Change to a government where institutionalized thievery and idiocy vie for supremacy.

Wasn’t it “ The Beast “ that got hung up while comming out of the American Embassey , and caused a traffic jamb a few years ago ?
It created much angst to the irked constables and Secret Service folks.
Couldn’t post it while at work.
Here is the rather nice looking old MF 35.
For whatever reason the image failed to load. Usually doesn’t happen.
