Just hours after pardoning Scooter Libby, President George Bush announced that he would be pardoning Adolf Hitler and freeing him from Hell.
After consultation with members of the Presidential staff, it was agreed that pardoning the long dead leader of the Third Reich was within presidential powers. Stating the lack of a fair trial due to Hitler's unforeseen death due to suicide and the exceeding long sentence of eternity in hell, President Bush thought it only fitting that Hitler be released to Limbo with time served.
Calling this a first step in freeing other deposed and despised dictators remembered mainly for their oppressive tactics and unbridled warfare, White House insiders declare this a turning point in the Bush administration. Indeed, with relations with Russia strained, it is believed that President Bush may take up the case of Stalin to win favor with the Russian people.
