Barack Obama is Facebook Friends with Nigerian Oil Rebels

Due to some hidden friendship with Nigerian Oil Rebels, the rebels who have been attacking Nigeria's oil industry are considering a ceasefire appeal by Senator Barack Obama (or Barry as they know him).

Here is an excerpt:

"The MEND command is seriously considering a temporary ceasefire appeal by Senator Barack Obama. Obama is someone we respect and hold in high esteem," the militant group said in an e-mailed statement.

MEND did not say when or where Obama, the leading candidate for the Democratic ticket for November's U.S. presidential election, made the appeal. It said it hoped the government would use any ceasefire to improve conditions for its detained leader, Henry Okah.

This is pretty good for Obama especially on the day of a potentially game changing primary. If this is true...Obama is golden.

Either way it's cool and I hope the oil stuff works out for Obama. Worse case senario if this whole Presidential stuff doesn't work out is to move to Nigeria and start selling oil.
