"There's no doubt the second these guys get out they'll head straight to Baghdad and start drawing up maps from there to here," said an anonymous Pentagon official.
There were conversations dealing with the creation of what one insider called, "imprecise maps."
"We would have had gas stations in and around Baghdad distribute these faulty maps that would designate Iceland as the United States," said a Energy company president who may or may not have been at the meeting, "and once unfolded, make it nearly impossible to fold back into its original condition. You try to re-fold those things while you're driving, it could fly up in your face and then how are you able to find anything."
"Not with our boys over there," said Secretary State, Condoleeza Rice. "See, while we're still over there, if something were in the plans over here, a simple daily briefing dossier stating a terrorist's intent to attack us here would instantly send up red flares in this White House, which coincidentally is also here."
The entire Bush science community, who was at the meeting, said that, "Even in the unlikely event they would get hold of an accurate map while we're still there, believing that you can get here from there while we're still there is as rational as believing an iceberg could melt."
"No doubt, we give them a date sure that we're leaving," said the President, "you can bet your life that before you can say, 'stay the course,' they'll be on the phone to the Automobile Club. And then it will be too late."
