Obama Asked To Pardon Six Turkeys On Thanksgiving: Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Tenet, Apple and Cider
by Winsip Custer CPW News Service
The Federal Presidential Pardon Network, a Washington, D.C. think-tank, has asked that President Obama pardon, along with Apple and Cider, the two turkeys pardoned on Wednesday, former President George W. Bush, former VP Dick Cheney, former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, and former CIA Director, George Tenet, for war crimes. Presidential aides indicated that Mr. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Tenet had not been formally charged with war crimes, though Mr. Cheney will not travel to Germany for fear of being apprehended by authorities there and being turned over to a court in the Hague. Mary G. Wilson of the FPPN said, "we think that it's best for the nation to put the eight years of the Bush Administration behind us and to get on with the work of healing the nation so that we can figure out where to go from here without the dreadful memories of manipulation and lies ruining our national life."
