The Latest "Bush-Cheney-CIA Scandal"

Cross-posted by Gary Fouse

(Congressional Democrats)

"Mommy, mommy, somebody told me that Dickie has a secret and he won't tell me-waaaah!"

"Why that's terrible, honey. What is the secret?"

"I don't know, it's a secret."

"Who told you?"

"I can't tell you. It's a secret, waaaah!"

"Well, we better call the news media."

Are you following the latest claims of Congress not being informed of a secret spying program by the CIA that Vice-President Cheney allegedly instructed the CIA not to inform Congress about? Are you upset? Are you angry? Are you indignant? Why? Do you know why you are upset, angry and indignant? If you are, ask yourself this: What is it all about? Answer? Well, nobody knows.

"Extra! Extra! Read all about it!"

You see, amid all the mainstream news media reports about this latest Bush/Cheney?CIA skulduggery, everything is a mystery. Read the news reports. Everything alleged is according to "unnamed officials". What is this secret program that is alleged? well, we don't know because it is still classified, you see. Who says that Dick Cheney instructed the CIA not to say anything to Congress?

What, who, when, how and why? No body can say. Actually, let me amend that; the "why" was to protect the American people from another attack after 9-11.

Of course, former CIA chief Michael Hayden is angrily denying that his agency kept information out of Congressional briefings, and it has also been reported that the "secret operation" never actually got off the ground. Yet, the mainstream news media is running wild with the story, and the Dems in Congress are calling for the usual investigations. Could this turn out to be another case of the CIA eventually trotting out memos to prove that Nancy Pelosi et al were actually briefed on this "nefarious secret operation"?

But before we get all exorcised over this latest revelation, I would like to see an actual "unnamed official" come out and go on the record with these accusations, and I would like to know what this "terrible secret operation" was all about before I go calling for the heads of Dick Cheney et al.


  1. The MSM and the leftatrds that "run" this country via the swamp are all over this and so far, it is without merit or substantial evidence of Cheney doing anything. It is really quite sad and tragic the democrats are so quick to jump on ANY rumor, lie or supposed allegation to attack the former Bush/Cheney administration. It is time to move onto more pressing matters like the constant failures of the mullah obamaham's administration, policies and capitulation to Islam. Perhaps these allegations keep coming up to distract the American people from the real problems the admisnistration should be dealing with, but are unable to because of incompetence, arrogance and lack of understanding what the most important problems are. The left is proving once again, no "crisis"
    real or not, should ever go to waste.

  2. This is just another typical ploy by the Obama administration to take you away from the real action - the nomination of Sotomayor and her hearings.

    Check to see every time their is a major bill to be passed or an appointment, they drag out Bush or Cheney or someone else from the Republican Party. This is an Saul Alinsky tactic.

    When they have Pelosi on the hot seat everyone defends much for truth and transparency in government.

  3. Right, and now it is reported in wsj that the big secret program was a "plot" to kill or capture Al-Quaida members.


  4. When I first heard this report, or saw it online - can't remember which, it claimed that Cheney had instructed the CIA to kill heads of states.

    Now, we have found out that this is about a program to target al-Qaeda leaders. When did we stop???? I guess we never started!!!!

  5. I thought that was the goal ever since 9-11.
