Really now? What sinister stuff has Dick Cheney done in his life? Make me a list if you do not mind.
You must have been asleep or out of touch with reality to be able to say that you aren't aware which you haven't said now have you..... If you were a person that wanted to be realistic and informed you would do your own investigation, but then you would have to confront reality which is what you have obviously chosen avoid.... Were you even alive in the 60s or even politically aware in the 70s and 80s?..... I am too old to waste my time trying to explain the truth to someone that is intent on believing lies.... I don't really want to play your spin game either, and when if ever I do, I'll tune in to Fox news.

Screw every god damn thing you listed. We only need one, and it's perjury.
They lied publicly about many, many things, and even under oath. So perjury is the charge. Since you were smart enough to make a thread like this, ill help you out - perjury means lying.

You obviously want attention. In your original post you asked for anything. I gave you 1 item. This was out of the criminal's own mouth. All the crimes and documentation would fill volumes. I did not go to some fringe site. I actually remember. If you need more proof, I am sure you can easily look up both speeches on YouTube and witness the two idiots for yourself.
Before you say they are guilty of all the charges in my list, shouldnt you have a little proof to back it up or are we just supposed to take your word that they are guilty?
The top Bush administration official in charge of deciding whether to bring Guantanamo Bay detainees to trial has concluded that the U.S. military tortured a Saudi national who allegedly planned to participate in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, interrogating him with techniques that included sustained isolation, sleep deprivation, nudity and prolonged exposure to cold, leaving him in a "life-threatening condition."
"We tortured [Mohammed al-]Qahtani," said Susan J. Crawford, in her first interview since being named convening authority of military commissions by Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates in February 2007. "His treatment met the legal definition of torture. And that's why I did not refer the case" for prosecution.Crawford, 61, said the combination of the interrogation techniques, their duration and the impact on Qahtani's health led to her conclusion.
"The techniques they used were all authorized, but the manner in which they applied them was overly aggressive and too persistent. . . . You think of torture, you think of some horrendous physical act done to an individual. This was not any one particular act; this was just a combination of things that had a medical impact on him, that hurt his health. It was abusive and uncalled for. And coercive. Clearly coercive. It was that medical impact that pushed me over the edge" to call it torture, she said.
