Bush Cheney Exile Deal Collapses Over Immunity
Washington, D.C. - At the very last minute, just as Air Force One was preparing to depart and 2 billion euros had been okayed for transfer, the deal to exile Bush and Cheney to Saudi Arabia fell through. It appears that the final snag, full immunity for the president and vice president, could not be agreed to by all interested parties.
Sources tell Assimilated Press that the International War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague adamantly refused to go along with any deal that would allow President Bush and Vice President Cheney to avoid prosecution.
Chief Prosecutor Jurgen Laenen of the International Court in The Hague said, "For the sake of history and future generations, there must be a full accounting of all criminal activities that Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney engaged in and the only way to do this is through a fair trial. Unlike the kangaroo courts that were set up in Guantanamo, Both Bush and Cheney will have access to counsel and they will not be subject to any torture. Once the truth has come out, we will finally be able to get this dark chapter behind us."
In a related development, the Bush administration has added The Netherlands to its list of nations that comprise the Axis of Evil and has also outlawed the importation of Gouda cheese into America.
