Barney Bush

Washington, DC (AP)
Sources at the Pentagon admitted this morning that the dog collars and leashes used in the abuse of Iraqi detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison have been traced back to "Barney" the Scottish Terrier owned by President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush.

The shocking revelation came just as Barney was being taken for his morning walk and a sharp-eyed Spoof reporter noticed that the cute little terrier's leash looked just like the one used to taunt prisoners in Iraq.

Attorney General John Ashcroft has filed charges against Barney. At this hour, it is not known whether charges will be brought against the President, but Democrats on Capitol Hill sense the end is near for this Republican administration.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
