Dick Cheney appears to be at the center of an eight year cover-up from the Congress of a secret CIA program.
This today in the NY Times:
The Central Intelligence Agency withheld information about a secret counterterrorism program from Congress for eight years on direct orders from former Vice President Dick Cheney, the agency’s director, Leon E. Panetta, has told the Senate and House intelligence committees, two people with direct knowledge of the matter said Saturday.
The buzz around what, exactly, this program was, may have entailed the coordinated murder of people (probably of Cheney’s choosing, approval, or discretion) outside of the country. A pseudo-international mafia-style Godfather, Dick Cheney may have become. Whatever was going on, Leon Panetta, on learning of it, immediately put a stop to it and informed Congress. It’s good to have our country back from these awful Machiavells who held our democratic institutions in such enormous contempt.
