US Confirms that it has no Secret Plans to Invade Canada
Phew...

Were it not for Canada and the War of 1812, there would be no “White” in “White House.”

200 years after the War of 1812, the United States confirmed that it has no secret plans to invade Canada. And no, this is not an article from “America Finest News Source.” Yesterday, after a meeting between Security of State Hilary Clinton and Mexico Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa, the State Department held its daily media scrum. During that time, State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland was asked a question by journalist about a private signing ceremony between Clinton and Espinosa, which was closed to the press. 

“I think it’s an update on Merida, but I will get that for you,” answered Nuland — the Merida Initiative is a partnership between the United States and Mexico to fight organized crime. Jokingly, the journalist went on to ask, ”This isn’t some secret thing… to invade Canada or something like that?” A smile on her face, Nuland responded, “No, no, no. It’s not anything classified.” Well, that’s a relief. Video of the entire Q&A can be found here, though the exchange between Nuland and the journalist comes right at the start. [NBC]
