Secret Service drive TRACTORS to guard the President at G8 summit.....
The Sun ^ | June 16, 2013 | AARON TINNEY

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 President’s 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 they’ll stick out like sore thumbs.

“It’s 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, Russia’s Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and France’s 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.

In case this was missed.....

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.

. . . 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.

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."

Six doctors?

Navy SEALs?

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.

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?

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.

yoe ~:” Dubbed “The Beast”, it has 8in-thick armour-plating on its doors, puncture-resistant tyres and tear-gas cannon.”

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.
