Vice President Dick Cheney has asserted his office is not a 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.

Bill Leonard, head of the government’s Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO), told Waxman’s staff that Cheney’s office has refused to provide his staff with details regarding classified documents or submit to a routine inspection as required by presidential order, according to Waxman. – The Blotter

Throw these bastards’ corrupt asses out of office and try them for war crimes already! I am dead serious. Many of these people belong behind bars. The Dems aren’t any better. If they were they would have pushed for impeachment and fought the twice illegal seizure of the office of President. Any 2008 Presidential candidate that seriously pushes to impeach these pricks gets my vote. I guess this leaves Kucinich. He’s definitely one of the most intelligent candidates even if he is a tad liberal for my taste. Gooooo KUCINICH!!
