Washington, DC (APE) – Billed as an event that might have descended into international slapstick, the White House today announced that President Bush’s dinner meeting last night with Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf went off without a hitch. White House spokesperson Tony Snow stated that the president had become further impressed with his two allies, describing them as a couple of very “wise guys”.
The evening began with the three leaders discussing highly classified plans for the war against Al Qaeda over drinks. The only tense situation occurred when Afghan President Karzai almost disclosed the secret location of Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, but he was quickly and politely muffled by Bush and Musharraf. The White House described the meeting overall as very cordial otherwise, and filled with much of the exaggerated nuances in body language that they had expected.
In typical Bush administration tradition, Bush early on assigned nicknames to both leaders, and referred to them as “Pervey” and “Karzey” throughout the evening.
“The little spat over the location of Bin Laden almost got a little nyucky,” stated Snow, “but they all three settled down quickly and discuss future plans for Middle East democracy over a friendly game of pool.”
“It was a wonderful evening,” concluded Snow, “in which nothing was thrown or broken, and nobody got hurt. All three pledged renewed efforts at promoting peace and transitioning illicit oppressive regimes towards democracy throughout the Middle East with the use of irony and humor.”
