US President George W. Bush was unmasked as the Devil and placed under house arrest today after a series of marks apparently fulfilling biblical prophecies, were found on the top of his head.
The marks, which were discovered by doctors conducting a routine presidential lice check, have been described by government scientists as "a strange combination of the number 6".
Acting on a tip off from sources close to the government, the CIA arrested the president in a dawn raid. It is believed Bush was taken to a secure location and will be questioned "within the next few days", the CIA press office said.
A White House spokesperson, at first refusing to comment said: "We are aware of the developments and allegations. But it is a well known fact that these marks are the result of an old war wound the president suffered during his tour of duty in Vietnam."
This seem to contradict official records which do not show President Bush as having served or stationed in Vietnam.
Film maker Michael Moore, whose next film Devil In The Bush, alleges that president Bush is the devil incarnate, called the White House statement "a revealation."
Said Moore: "Finally! The White House's statement is a devilish pack of lies to obscur what we have already suspected: Bush is the devil! He does not even know where Vietnam is because he has never beent o Vietnam!"
The development has shocked the nation and is creating shockwaves around the world.
World leaders, headed by British prime minister Tony Blair, refused to comment on the development. The Vatican has refused to be drawn on the matter. "We are conductingour own investigation and will publish our findings once we have all the facts," the spokesman said.
