Cheney Exempts
Himself from Reality

Jim Kirwan
"Vice President Dick Cheney has asserted his office is not part of the executive branch of the U.S. government, and therefore not bound by a presidential order governing the protection of classified information by government agencies, according to a new letter from Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., to Cheney.(1)
Apparently Mr. Cheney is unaware that he receives a salary from the people of this nation as an officer of this government. Somehow he has managed not to notice that his office also appears on the Organizational Chart for the federal government of the nation. As Vice-President he has his own plane - Air Force Two, paid for the taxpayers; yet he has continually demanded special privileges in every area of his service to the country, - in favor of several more lucrative and less responsible "special privileges" that he has awarded to himself. This has been the case since he first arrived in the Vice-Presidential mansion, as part of the Coup in 2000.
It is time for Mr. Cheney to appear, forcibly if necessary, before a joint session of the appropriate committees in congress to answer under oath and in public for his actions. Until he answers these questions he should be removed from office, and treated just as Spiro Agnew was in the Nixon era.
The questions from congress should address all of Cheney's reluctances; from his refusal to discuss those that met with him when they, created the nation's energy polices, in 2001, all the way through the entirety of his two terms in the Office of the Vice-Presidency of the United States. That would include his takeover of the Secret Services control over the White House logs; in order to keep secret from the public, just who exactly met with him and when: over the national energy policy that he alone has deemed to be classified information.
Mr. Cheney has continued to repeat proven lies to the public, surrounding the wars, in which he has played a major cheerleading role, despite all facts to the contrary. His continual linking of Saddam to 911 has been particularly offensive; in light of the facts that there was never any link whatsoever. Also, his role in the Valerie Plame Affair; the outing of an active duty CIA Officer in direct violation of the laws prohibiting such an action needs to be thoroughly and publicly reviewed, under oath and on the public record.
Cheney needs to be forced to answer for these and for all his other self-appointed actions and irresponsibility's, as the Vice-President of the United States. If this is not done then all pretense of there being any real teeth in the laws of the United States, will be clearly on the record for the entire world to see. Either the laws of this country apply to all of us, or they apply to no one: there can be no continuing double-standard here"war or no war!
This latest outrage simply cannot be allowed to stand without consequences. Thanks to Cheney-Bush we are entangled in wars without end, trying desperately to fight a tactic, instead of a literal enemy, in a multi-national war without end. Cheney as one of the major architects of that war needs to be examined publicly for his role in the compartmentalization's that have led this nation into these cul-de-sacs of failures, in every aspect of life in these disunited States. We cannot have a war against a tactic, and terrorism is a nothing but "a tactic. (3)
"The Oversight Committee has learned that over the objections of the National Archives, Vice President Cheney exempted his office from the presidential order that establishes government-wide procedures for safeguarding classified national security information. The Vice President asserts that his office is not an "entity within the executive branch." (2)
The Vice-President has declared himself to be above and beyond the law. If congress does not act immediately then everyone will know that this government has become the clear enemy of the people of this nation, and that at the very least will finally bring some candor to this farce that claims to lead the nation. . .
