Obama Lookalike In Syria To Rally Anti-ISIS Fighters

Al-BOUKAMAL, Syria—(TYDN) A President Barack Obama body double arrived here Thursday to rally U.S.-armed militants fighting ISIS—the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

The militants—who have come from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates—don't know it's a presidential body double. Administration officials said the ploy was necessary to assist the president's anti-terror agenda without putting the real president in danger.

"These militants in Syria are all too consumed with the free weapons the U.S. has been throwing at them, too busy beating their women and treating them like second-class citizens and committing other heinous jihad to even notice that it's not the real president," a well placed Obama administration official told TheYellowDailyNews on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic. "And, there's plenty of news coverage that it's not the real Obama."

Analysts said it was the third time Obama has engaged in such tactics. The last times were in 2008 and 2012, when he won election.

"This bold move of sending a lookalike to Syria resembles his election and re-election campaigns," Stanford University political scientist Jed Zenstein said in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "It's a beautiful blending of the surreal, politics and deceit."

Obama and his Middle Eastern allies last month commenced bombing targets here in Syria in a bid to knock out ISIS, the United States' latest enemy in the region and a foe given birth to by America's Iraq invasion under Obama's predecessor, President George W. Bush.

At a Rose Garden news conference Sept. 24, the president said the latest offensive in the Middle East "will bring peace to the region in an expedited fashion by 2099."

Sources familiar with the lookalike told TheYellowDailyNews on condition of anonymity that the life insurer of Obama's body double has withdrawn its policy and refunded all paid premiums.
