Report: Bush Briefed About "Potential For Mars Life"

Hold on to your space seats, there are wild stories coming out of NASA, or at least places close:

The White House has been alerted by NASA about plans to make an announcement soon on major new Phoenix lander discoveries concerning the "potential for life" on Mars, scientists tell Aviation Week & Space Technology.

Sources say the new data do not indicate the discovery of existing or past life on Mars. Rather the data relate to habitability--the "potential" for Mars to support life--at the Phoenix arctic landing site, sources say.

P.S. How amazingly creepy and cool is it that I have a completely serious "extraterrestrial life" tag on this post?

They should seriously consider shipping George W Bush and dick Cheney to Mars. On second thought, if NASA truly wants to show (prove) that there is life on Mars those two wouldn't help their efforts.
