Barack Obama's Diary: Putin on the pressureDear Diary: I have been congratulating myself on the way I have been handling Putin's requests for our hi-tech bomb detectors, for the Sochi Olympics. I hadn't responded by breakfast today, so I was not surprised to hear the familiar harmonies of the Moscow Steel Foundry Male-Voice Choir issuing from my iPresidentophone as I  raised my cereal bowl to my lips and drank the left-over milk. [Michelle hates when I do this] "Hello Vlad," I said, after blotting my lips with a fine linen napkin. "Good day, Obamavich, where are those bomb detectors I asked you for?
"I regret that I was a little hasty in agreeing to send them," I replied, "the Pentagon doesn't want them reverse-engineered by your guys."
"You have two very nice warships, in the Black Sea," said Vlad."there are several of hunter-killer submarines there also.We wouldn't want a nasty accident, now would we?"
" Don't be hasty Vlad, I'll  get permission from Valerie Jarrett,  phone the Pentagon, then get back to you."  Scary man, that Vlad, thank goodness I'm always a step ahead of him.  But enough about me.
