Commandos Once Again

"I love it when a plan comes together." Looks like the A-Team has actually gone and done the U.S. Government a favor, some 34 years after being imprisoned for a crime they didn't commit. Unconfirmed reports are coming out detailing the heroic venture led by Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, for the identification, capture, and ultimate death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck served a key role as the man on the ground, sweet-talking his way into the favor of some Iraqi women, including an as yet unidentified woman who was found in the safe house where Zarqawi was hiding. Once Lt. Peck received intel as to Zarqawi's location, Capt. H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock flew into action, literally. Capt. Murdock piloted a twin-engine AH-64A/D Apache attack helicopter, followed by a pair of F-16 fighter jets armed with 500 pound bombs. After the bombs were deployed, decimating Zarqawi's safe house, Capt. Murdock touched down and unleashed the A-Team's secret weapon. Capt. Murdock administered ammonia inhalants to his unconscious passenger, Sgt. Bosco "B.A." Baracus. Upon coming to, Sgt. Baracus was a mad man. Fortunately, Capt. Murdock was able to re-direct Sgt. Baracus's ... passion towards the rubble of the safe house, where Zarqawi was struggling to free himself. Needless to say, Zarqawi's hope of escape and survival vanished in a barrage from Sgt. Baracus.

The full story of the A-Team can be found here. Some details have been slightly altered, and most of the names have been changed. Just remember: "If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team."

Oh, and Jeremy D - this is for you.
