    More looney left antics.

    Go ahead explain how a Vice President that has no contact with his holdings have anything to do with something one does? You remember the term Blind Trust?

    Ohh and I suspect the Judge may not sign the complaints since they are clearly bullshit.

    Great.

    Just what we need. Vesting our master class with encentives to put more people in prison.

    And I'm betting more than half the people who think they love freedom, can't see why this is a really really bad idea, either.

    I also remember the conditions for wire tapping under FISA. They didn't follow them, why would Cheney honor the blind trust?:evil:

    Bush will issue pardons on all his folks that could implicate him. On just about the last days in office. He will pardon the convicted ones, and pardon those that haven't even gone to trial yet.

    Called CYBA

    do you think he'll beat clinton's record? got some serious catching up to do...

    The following is a partial list of people pardoned by Bill Clinton[1]. As President Bill Clinton used his power under the U.S. Constitution to grant pardons and clemency to 456 people, On January 20, 2001, he pardoned 140 people in the final hours of his presidency[2].

    List of people pardoned by Bill Clinton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As of July 21, 2008,[1] President George W. Bush had issued 157 presidential pardons to people who have served their entire sentence, and has commuted in addition the sentences of six people.[2]

    You know......this kinda explains a LOT about GTMO.

    Cheney had his own private jails there, he had the VP, and Bush Jr. is his meat puppet.

    No wonder GTMO needs to be closed.

    This is stupid.

    We have to wait until Bush leaves office to indict Cheney, otherwise Bush will just pardon him.

    While many may wish Cheney to be prosecuted for being Dr. Evil in the last eight years the fact remains he still is the V.P. of the United States and this case has zero merit on many different grounds. First is a jurisdictional one, second the fact he is V.P. and is immune from prosecution on this matter, and third even if this case is taken to some sympathetic judge he can be pardoned faster than you can say your name. While I am no fan of our current V.P. and his antics all this is an exercise to gain publicity. We all know that the new president-elect intends to close the complex at GITMO which will allow some of those people to take up arms against the US Military again as has happened when they have been released before. So no matter how badly many may want Dick Cheney to be sent prosecuted he won't be.

    Navy, if we close GITMO, fewer people will have a reason to hate us. We are in a political war, and terrorism is a law enforcement problem, not a military one.
