Cheney Exempts Own Office from National Security Laws

 

Cheney has refused to cooperate with a government office responsible for safeguarding national security information, and is seeking to abolish the office altogether. Reagan signed the executive order to protect such information.

He asserts he does not have to comply with the presidential order requiring cooperation because the Information Security Oversight Office is "not an entity within the executive branch". His office last complied with the order in 2002.

His staff blocked the department from inspecting his office in 2004, an unprecedented action. The ISOO has asked Alberto Gonzales to resolve this conflict. So far, the Justice Department has done nothing. Henry Waxman is investigating.

They do have watchers but they are all on the same payroll, thus legally blind.

To be fair, all the D's had to do was put out a monkey... And yet they put out Kerry, a guy who couldn't make up his mind on Abortion, nor about Iraq. So, yes, Bush is bad, but damnit, an even somewhat likable guy, Hell, uh, Danny Devito, could have won. But instead they picked, perhaps one of the least commanding figures I've ever seen.

Technically we only elected them once. And that was because John Kerry looks like lurch from the Adams Family. The first time they got into office was on a technicality of how the U.S. Electoral system works. Al Gore won the popular vote.

  hmm  
 
It's too bad. I sense with public opinion at a rock bottom low, this administration doesn't even go through the motions of trying to justify actions...

If you read the whole article, it almost seems like it's turning into an ugly pirate caliber plundering of policy and constitutional rights in exchange for corperate $,$$$,$$$'s...

Just have to try hold the raft afloat till the america for sale sign has a chance to be removed in 08.

  correction  
 
It was President Clinton that issued the order, not Reagan. This article stated the order was thirty years old; I backdated from 2007, that gave me 1987; Reagan was president at that time.

Man. 577 days, 8 hours, 40 minutes left of this horrible travesty as I write this.

Congrats for falling influence to the spin of the political machine.

Kerry was destroyed and spinned off into oblivion by the media. There is no possible way Kerry could be worse then Bush.

  I hope hope hope  
 
when bush and cheney are out of office they end up in prison. charge them with being secretive, lying, and spying on americans.

Kerry is a career senator of MA. Nothing else needs to be said.

it's true that most of republican voters are brainless idiots (that's probably why they liked GW Bush so much - he's one of their own) but I think media manipulation, ballot fraud and supreme court chicanery weighed more heavily in installing GW Bush in the white house.

  Not to mention  
 
Diebold voting machines "interpreting" your vote, IE changing it to Bush.

In reality, people such as Cheney that are really high up in the government food chain, are always going to be above the law, and its going to be that way. Oh and the government can be secretive, can spy on people when they want, and essentially lie and get away with it.

That's just the way it is. They can tell you they are not spying, but they can if they want..

@ landers:
i agree with you, there were many factors in getting Bush into office, ultimately its the government who picks the president, not so much the people
