The Obamobile leaks?

I'd missed it until a weird blog freakout over whether the president-elect's transportation will be green enough, but this piece on what's believed to be Obama's GM limo--sort of a cross between a tank and a Bond car--is fascinating:

The Department of State also uses specialized vehicles, and the agency’s disposal methods have been detailed in a document entitled “Bureau of Diplomatic Security’s February 2004 Armored Vehicle Program.” Methods include burial at sea, explosive demolition, burning, crushing or burial on land controlled by the federal government.

If anyone knows how to get a job as "Director of Presidential Limo Burning and Crushing," I will send my resume.
