dick_cheney_satanic_salute After a media blitz of misinformation touting the merits of torture, Dick Cheney has gone back into hiding. Is the the icy former vice president scared of an investigation probing his secret hit squad program that he ordered the CIA to lie to Congress about? Maybe. Or the soul snatching Republican could be facing actual, real world threats. He asked for an extension of secret service protection and President Obama agreed, signing off on the request. Normally, the outgoing vice president is provided with a six month detail, while the president gets a full decade. But does Cheney really need it? If he shoots his friend in the face, can you image what he would do to his enemies? |NYDN|
