Ki Gendeng Pamungkas slit the throat of a goat, a small snake and stabbed a black crow in the chest, stirred their blood with spice and broccoli before drank the "potion" and smeared some on his face.
I don't hate Americans, but I don't like Bush," said Pamungkas, who believed the ritual would succeed as, "the devil is with me today."
He said the jinx would send spirits to possess Secret Service personnel guarding Bush and put them in a trance, leading them into falsely thinking the president was under attack, thus eventually causing chaos in Bogor Presidential Palace, where the American leader was scheduled to meet President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Monday.
While the jinx has so far not directly harmed Bush, it seems to be taking a toll on people around him and close to him. When Air Force One landed in Vietnam earlier this week, a couple of tires blew out on the plane. Last night, after the President stopped over in Hawaii on his return trip home, the White House travel director was robbed and beaten outside a Waikiki night club. Today, three police motorcycle escorts were injured when they collided while escorting the presidential motorcade to Hickam Air Force Base, seriously injuring two of the police officers. Meanwhile, first daughter Barbara Bush had her purse stolen during dinner in a restaurant in Buenos Aires, Argentina while being guarded by Secret Service agents. Things weren't going much better for the Secret Service Agents. One of the agents on Barbara's detail was later badly beaten when someone attempted to mug him.
Bush may need to call on the services of a black magic practitioner to reverse the hex. I was going to suggest a certain congresswoman, but I don't want to get "you know who" all worked up again.
