Al Qaeda Disbands; Says Job of Destroying U.S. Economy Now in Congress’s Hands

The international terror group known as Al Qaeda announced its dissolution today, saying that “our mission of destroying the American economy is now in the capable hands of the U.S. Congress.”

In an official statement published on the group’s website, the current leader of Al Qaeda said that Congress’s conduct during the so-called “fiscal-cliff” showdown convinced the terrorists that they had been outdone.

“We’ve been working overtime trying to come up with ways to terrorize the American people and wreck their economy,” said the statement from Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. “But even we couldn’t come up with something like this.”

Mr. al-Zawhiri said that the idea of holding the entire nation hostage with a clock ticking down to the end of the year “is completely insane and worthy of a Bond villain.”

1. GOP terrorists

"As terrorists, every now and then you have to step back and admire when someone else has beaten you at your own game," he said. "This is one of those times."


Hilarious... if it wasn't so true.

2. Almost too close to the truth to be satire!

Scary...........

First, they launch a massive terrorist attack against us that succeeds because the people in charge (Republicans) are asleep at the switch prompting Republicans to overreact and invade a country that had nothing to do with the attack and/or AQ which drags out for 8 years and bleeds our treasury and military and then Republicans use the resulting deficits to attack and drag down the US economy and middle-class and the Presidency of Barack Obama.
