So says Vice-President Dick Cheney.

I kid you not.

In an article entitled, Cheney Power Grab: Says White House Rules Don’t Apply to Him, the Vice-President has said that the rules about secrecy don’t apply to his office.

As per the article:

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.

Now, do you see why these hearings aren’t tedious at all, but very necessary. We have this power hungry mad man blatantly flaunting that he doesn’t have to defer to the laws of this country. Began when they let him get away with that Energy Policy Meetings in secret, and has only gotten progressively worse.

I don’t care if he’s sent a subpoena everyday until the day they leave, it has to be done, because someone has to remind him that he was elected (in theory) and not crowned. That the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES DOES APPLY TO HIM!
