    Default Dick Cheney back in the news

    Judge orders release of Cheney FBI interview







    WASHINGTON - A federal judge ruled Thursday that the FBI must publicly reveal much of its interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney during the investigation into who leaked the identity of a CIA operative.
    The FBI interviewed Cheney in June 2004 as it was investigating the leak of Valerie Plame's identity after her husband publicly criticized the Bush administration. Both the Bush and Obama administrations said they wanted to keep the interview confidential because future presidents and vice presidents may not cooperate with criminal investigations if they know what they say could become public.
    But U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled there was no justification to withhold the entire 67 pages of records documenting the interview since the Plame leak investigation has concluded. He said that limited parts could be withheld to protect national security or personal privacy.

    Me too. The republican president that ended the Vietnam War that the democrats started, changed their mind about, and called for an end of, and feel no responsibility for.

    I expect you liked President Richard Milhous Nixon, the 37th President of the United States as much as I liked carter.

    Some of Nixon's accomplishments were:

    Some of his most acclaimed achievements came in his quest for world stability. During visits in 1972 to Beijing and Moscow, he reduced tensions with China and the U.S.S.R. His summit meetings with Russian leader Leonid I. Brezhnev produced a treaty to limit strategic nuclear weapons. In January 1973, he announced an accord with North Viet Nam to end American involvement in Indochina. In 1974, his Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, negotiated disengagement agreements between Israel and its opponents, Egypt and Syria.

    I wish we could have someone like him back in office without the scandals.

    I am in shock. I did't think you had the capacity to find anything done by anyone that wasn't part of the extreme left of any benefit at all.

    While Dem's were certainly responsible for the massive escalation in Vietnam, and for the mistakes and judgments that killed tens of thousands of our own sons and hundreds of thousands of civilians, the honor of starting that war actually rests with Eisenhower.

    Eisenhower rejected the French/UN brokered settlement following Dien Bien Phu that called for elections to unify North and South Vietnam, propped up a Catholic government that was not supported by the people, and introduced US military advisers and weapons before turning the whole mess over to Kennedy (who still should have been smart enough to walk away).
