    OTTAWA, CANADA (AP) -- On the first of his two-day planned visit to Canada, George W. Bush was taken into custody by Canadian authorities citing war crime charges. Under Canadian law, even a non-citizen can be charged for crimes committed outside of Canada once that individual enters the country.

    I was shown this link a couple days ago and noticed right away the URL seemed a bit odd. Nice spoof though. The guy that gave me the link thought for sure that it was real.
    I told him that the link wasn't really CNN's plus there'd be a heck of a lot more news on it than just from that URL.

    A top story on Google News was an article which claimed that Canada had arrested US President George W. Bush in Ottawa and charged him with war crimes. The story, here was from a satire site called Axis of Logic. However Google News appears to have missed the disclaimer while parsing the site and treated it as fact.

    Complete story here,

    This should not have fooled anyone, Canada doesn't have the balls to even dream of a stunt like that. If they did the U.S. would be adding some additional territority.
