Many people have mentioned that Cheney is 100% untouchable. Forgive my ignorance but why is that?
Firstly, the LAW is not about who's right and who's wrong, it's
who's got the most money and time to waste on Lawyers that wins.
Cheney has made a lot of folk at Haliburton multi-multi-millionaires,
they might feel indebted to him for that.
Cheney would have connections everywhere, and I'm sure it would
even extend to having somebody whacked if need be.
He is an extremely evil individual and would do what ever it takes
to make something not happen.
Cheney's an extremely smart man, everything is calculated way in
advance and always has a get-out-of-jail-free card. He's already played the
"you can't take me to court" card because he made his office in Government
exempt from any past and future litigation.
Cheney's made enough money out of Haliburton, if the going did
get tough all he has to do is go to another country without any
extradition treaty and start splashing money around.
And on a last note: when dick & dub were together they weren't
above the Law, they re-wrote the Law and then ignored it.
So yeah, he's pretty much untouchable.
