CIA Nail British Schoolkids
- Anti-Bush prank draws fire of US spooks

THE CIA spends its time chasing British school boys, it has emerged.

America's feared secret service outfit brought out the goons to stamp on the activities of two 15 year olds who sent a prank e-mail to US President George Bush. In fairness to Spycentral, the e-mail did contain a threat to assassinate Bush, but clearly came from the pupil's own school computer.

Even after the little mishap was cleared up, a spokesperson for the CIA refused to let a smile crack across his stern face. "Every threat made against President Bush is taken very seriously," the source said.

In keeping with official British security policy to take its lead from the US, heavy-handed local police paid the two boys a visit, but the headteacher of their school managed to maintain some kind of perspective. "We have not suspended the two pupils," Heather Bowman said. "I think they were a bit surprised by the results of their actions."
