If Bush and Rove had an ounce of sense they would dump Cheney for the 2004 election. Cheney is responsible for the NEO CON takeover and utter disaster
that is now Iraq. He is a corrupt and greedy man. Bush should throw him to the wolves - where he belongs and pick Colin Powell, for example, as a
running mate. Perhaps then our government would rule with at least a modicum of common sense. If he chose Colin Powell, the Republicans would probably
be looking at owning 4 back-to-back terms. Just a thought. Here's an article from Executive Intelligence Review discussing Cheney's dirty doings and
ongoing calls for Dept. of Justice to investigate Cheney's people for theft of classified memos, among other things.

'Plumbers' Are Under Investigation in Cheney-Gate
by Jeffrey Steinberg
The triumphant neo-conservative claim trumpeted throughout U.S. media on Nov. 14that links between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda had been
"conclusively proven" by a memo from Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith to the Senate Intelligence Committeerapidly went the way of all
previous such cooked claims from Vice President Dick Cheney's faction in Washington. But more, this claim had, by Nov. 17-18, boomeranged into its
opposite: a Defense Department denial of the claim itself; an eruption of official demands to investigate who passed this classified document to the
waiting neo-con press; the likely revival of the Intelligence Committee probe which had been shut down on Nov. 7 "to save Cheney's neck"; and the
escalation of "Cheney-gate" itself, by the exposure of what appear to be "plumbers' " operations to steal sensitive documents from the Cheney
The boomerang was part of what Democratic Presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche called "the start of the hot phase" of his Presidential
campaignfocussing on the Jan. 13 Washington, D.C. Democratic primary and other events in the nation's capitaland of his drive to force Cheney out
of office. LaRouche told National Public Radio in St. Louis in a Nov. 18 interview, "Cheney is the guy we've got to be rid of, because we can not be
going into this policy of nuclear preventive war, which is the policy the United States will be dragged into, if we don't get him out before the next
On Nov. 17, the Central Intelligence Agency formally requested a Department of Justice (DOJ) probe into the leak to the neo-con press of the
classified memo from Feith; it was expected that both the National Security Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency would file similar requests
within days. The Feith document, dated Oct. 27, had been passed on to the neo-con Weekly Standard, and widely published and reported on Nov. 14, with
great fanfare from Rupert Murdoch's Fox TV and New York Post. The Weekly Standard, too, is a Murdoch-owned propaganda sheet, edited by one of
Washington's leading Leo Strauss cultists, William Kristol.
