The Vice President considers it his job to come up with worst case scenarios in terms of threats against the US. He suggests his forays into this "dark side" are helping keep Americans safer and cites the fact that there have been no further terror attacks on US soil in the five years since 9/11.
Cheney said he now recognizes that the insurgency in Iraq was not "in its last throes," as he said in May 2005. "I think there is no question but that we did not anticipate an insurgency that would last this long," the vice president said.

Cheney shrugged off news reports that his influence was waning, partly as a result of foreign policy miscalculations and partly as other advisers, especially Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, were getting more attention from President Bush.

Cheney challenged polls suggesting that a majority of people in the United States do not believe the Bush administration's claim that the war in Iraq is the central front in the fight against terrorism.

Cheney feints left, he feints right, he drives the lane, he goes for a "slam dunk!"

Cheney, Cheney, Cheney. He wishes it was all about him. Except the part he blames on George Tenet, which is everything bad.

But his "dark side" is helping keep America safe. What was that old quote about the Abyss 'staring back'?

I thought his most telling remarks regarded his disagreement with the USSC decision that the administration "overstepped its authority" (abused its power) with the circumvention of the Geneva Convention regarding the detainees, and his comment that reporters weren't in season (yet).

Cheney and Rice are the dark, black hearts of this administration...Rice has a dark cloud of a soul and Cheney has lost his.

His closed door meetings on the development of the administration's energy policy didn't even come up, that's how big the smoke screen around this guy has become. He continues to surround himself with new controversies, and must be hoping the American public has a short enough mermory for his most grievous transgressions to remain out of mind.

"when you stare lon enough at an abyss it starts to stare back"
or something like that,

This man has a sinister and nefarious look to him. His actions just confirm that he has and continues to be the worst (yes worse than that Sh#* stain OBL) he may not have orchestrated the 9/11 attacks (thogh his involvement or prior knowledge is questionable) But he has throug hhis actions and policies he has brought up ruined the lives and COST HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS of dollars from the american citizens. How anyone could stand behind this man and support him really calls into question there own ethics and moral standing.
