Here Lies Cheney

White House officials and a Cheney Aide approved the Halliburton contract in Iraq according to Pentagon officials testifying before a Congressional inquiry. Of course, Cheney claimed publicly on the NBC News program "Meet the Press" on Sept. 14, 2003, that "as vice president, I have absolutely no influence of, involvement of, knowledge of in any way, shape or form of contracts led by the Corps of Engineers or anybody else in the federal government."

Well, that looks very much like another lie. Is anyone really surprised at this point? It's tragic when such unethical behavior comes to be expected of a public official. I shudder to think the standard these thugs will set for public service if they are not severely punished for their behavior, and simply losing the election is NOT punishment enough.
