Lies on Lies

In a speech to the Heritage Foundation later today Vice President Dick Cheney proclaims that the Bushbucker-in-Chief's program of illegal NSA spying on Americans on these shores--his bypassing of the law might have allowed the Bushies to thwart at least the 9/11/2001 attack on the Pentagon, according to an advance report on the Washington Post website.*

Apparently, Cheney neglects to report that the Bushbucker-in-Chief and the Bushbucker-in-Waiting (Cheney) had in hand nearly everything but flight numbers and the precise date, yet they did not act on that information. Cheney never lets a little thing like the truth hinder the accumulation and exercise of power.

So here's the test for the Bushies: Open the redacted and classified files, not to mention the ones sequestered under "executive privilege," so we can judge the merits of your arguments and the depths of your incompetence.

* A Glossary of a sort: The dog is a bit idiosyncratic, as reader doubtless noted, nowhere more than in naming, so to straighten things out:

Bushbucker-in-Chief = the Bush, the Bushy, Bush, George W. Bush, POTUS,

Bushbucker-in-Waiting = the dark lord = cheney, in all his n=incarnations

Bushbuckers = Bushies, the Bushies = followers of the Bush.
