Cheney of Command
Sorry about the title of this post.
Last week, I heard on NPR that Dick Cheney had circumvented the chain of command on 9/11 by ordering that an airliner be shot down. The report seemed to question whether Cheney had cut Rumsfeld out of the chain of command, but I was left silently wondering: was there any evidence that he didn't also cut out President Bush?
Now, here is an article from Newsweek asking the same question. I am relieved to feel alone no longer.
If true, of course, there will not be much effect. It's not like Cheney cheated on his wife and then lied about it in response to an irrelevant question in a civil deposition.
