Cheney's Law
PBS Frontline Tuesday Oct 16th

For three decades, Vice President Dick Cheney has waged a secretive, and often bitter battle to expand the power of the presidency. Now in a direct confrontation with Congress, as the administration asserts executive privilege to head off investigations into domestic wiretapping and the firing of U.S. attorneys, FRONTLINE meticulously traces the behind-closed-doors battle within the administration over the power of the presidency and the rule of law.

Isn't it clear this Cheney maniac has been trying to subvert our

U.S. Constitution for years now? Try him for high treason already!

Regarding the charade between him & Norman Mineta on 9/11, if Dick knew that an airliner was "50 miles out" from the Pentagon, why didn't he warn those people to take immediate cover??? (Are there no sirens, flashing lights, or loudspeakers to alert people at the world's most protected building?)

The difference between standing/sitting near a window or moving to a more secure area could've easily meant the difference between life & death for many people inside the Pentagon that day! How can Dick possibly explain his failure?

re columbo

As the devils advocate I would say that with the aircraft 50 miles out there would be no way to know what the target might be.

unless of course, you were in on the planning!

unless of course, you were in on the planning!


plane were they tracking? And it had to be 50 miles out from something....So what the F**k was it 50 miles out from?
So Dick....what plane was it? And it was 50 miles out from what?
These are just two questions id love answered.

If Cheney & the "young man" had no idea what the target was,

why was the location of the plane given as "50 miles out", "30 miles out", "20 miles out" etc.? Didn't they have to know "out" from what to talk about it's location like that???

Furthermore, after the WTC was struck by 2 "hijacked" airliners, shouldn't the people in the Pentagon have been warned that another "hijacked" airliner was headed towards them, so that they could at least move away from windows & take cover??? (I assume the most protected building in the world has a reinforced basement or something for emergencies, yes???)

A hundred bucks........

say's these two questions won't be asked.
Any takers?


Thanks Joe. My question has been submitted.

Questions about Dick Cheney

On May 8 of 2001 Dick Cheney was placed in charge of the nation's counterterrorism and military drills by exectuve order. This relates to the more than 10 war games that were simultaneously scheduled for the morning of 9/11/01.

Cheney and Rumsfeld are directly linked to this rescheduling of numerous war games for that morning. These war games were not properly investigated, and their effects on the non-performance of the miltiary during the attacks has been covered up.

Further, both Richard Clarke and Secretary Norman Mineta place Cheney in the PEOC "bunker" before the Pentagon strike. The 9/11 Commission threby has lied and omitted their testimony, telling us Cheney arrived "9:58."

Cheney is also deeply involved with Continuity of Government, a parallel and secret government which is extra-constitutional. This unlawful concentration of power must be investigated and exposed.

Mineta's testimony probably relates to the June 2001 "Air Piracy" regulations. When Cheney was asked, "Do the orders still stand?" repeatedly, it was most likely in the context of freezing fighter interceptors from launching because of no "approval" from the Secretary of Defense.

Rumsfeld was missing for an unbelievably long period during the attacks, and thus gave no "approval" to launch interceptors. Cheney's role was evidently to enforce the June 2001 orders to the letter, thus freezing the "approval" process.

This was high treason.
