    Former vice-president Dick Cheney ordered the CIA to conceal counter-terrorism plan from Congress | World news | guardian.co.uk
    :clap2:
    The former US vice-president Dick Cheney ordered the CIA to conceal a highly secret counter-terrorist programme from Congress for eight years, possibly in breach of longstanding oversight laws.

    Democratic leaders in Congress are planning hearings to establish how and why information about the programme was withheld. The details have been revealed to members of intelligence committees but not been made public.

    The revelation in the US press on Sunday that Cheney played a primary role in keeping the programme secret suggests that it would have been highly contentious. Attention has focused on reports earlier this year that he oversaw an assassination programme.

    It doesn't surprise me at all.

    Heck, him and Bush lied about everything else.

    Any concrete proof of this or is this really just more politics to cover for that crazed dirtbag, Pelosi?

    Did you bother to read the article? ... this was released TODAY.
    It shows us that, among other things, Speaker Pelosi was right.

    An article from the Guardian? Why would I bother with an article from the Guardian?

    I asked a simple question. Do you have any concrete proof? You know, a person from the CIA that was told BY Dick Cheney that the CIA will keep secrets from the Congress.

    Something from a credible source like that?

    Oh, I see. This is about that program that never went into implementation. The rest is based upon 'closed' sessions in which a number of Democrats said that they were briefed that the CIA had with-held information. Convenient that the American people are not privy to those sessions in which it just so happens that Puckered Pelosi is vindicated.

    That's funny, really. Someone posted a video to "prove" that global warming is not caused by mankind. All those participating spoke with British accents. I commented, at the time, how weird it was that wingnuts cite British sources when it is to their advantage.
    BTW, many news sources carried this story today ... read, read, read.
    Does this source meet with your approval?

    so she convinces Leon and other democrats that this is what happened. Ridiculous , only 3 of the very top Al-Queda leaders were water boarded, one being the master-mind of 9-11.

    I am all for water-boarding any of these idiots including Pelosi, maybe that's what we need to do to get to the truth.:lol:

    As of yet, an unproven story simply getting circulated by the state run media.

    Obama's poll numbers must have dipped again.

    Methinks Cheney is saying "bring it on" regarding all of this - and Pelosi is gonna get burned yet again. She grows more inept and insulated with each passing year...
