What Would (a) Dick Do?
Former VP Dick Cheney appears ready to ratchet up the stakes of his opposition to the Obama administration.
He said Sunday he might not cooperate with new U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s probe into possible abuses by the Bush administration.
Cheney told FOX News he might refuse to talk to a special prosecutor looking into the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques earlier this decade.
Cheney is playing to the conservative crowd, but he also appears to be saying he will decide whether he’s above the law or not.
“It will depend on the circumstances and what I
think their activities are really involved in.
I’ve been very outspoken in my views on this matter.”
In Dick’s parallel universe “outspoken” is synonymous with “above the law”.
