State Department: No secret plan to invade Canada

The U.S. and Mexico are not secretly planning to invade Canada, a State Department spokeswoman confirmed to laughter during a daily press briefing. Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland was taking questions from journalists about its activities Tuesday, which included a meeting between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Mexico Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa. She was asked about "a signing ceremony" with Espinosa – what was being signed and why was the ceremony not open to the press. The journalist asked, "This isn’t some secret thing … to invade Canada or something like that?" The U.S. did draw up a secret plan to invade Canada in 1935, codenamed "War Plan Red," some of which was accidentally published by mistake and reported by The New York Times. There is also a website called www.invadecanada.us, which lists reasons such as connecting the mainland U.S. with Alaska, "they’re just a little too proud," and "they stole our basketball teams."
