Sadly ATS attracts mostly conservative and right wingers and they are not about to allow a thread concerning the criminal behaviour of one of their heroes to florish...they will ignore it as much as possible.

Cheney the dick and the bush minor administration has a long history of running fast and furious with the law and if and it is an IF this is the secret assassination program that Seymore Hersh discussed, it predates Pelosi's comments...
That is why he is a great scapegoat.
1. He is very disliked
2. Known to bend the law almost to the breaking point.
3. Talks about how torture is necsassary.
If I said Cheney killed my kittens and ate them with no proof (like these dems are doing) people would be inclined to believe me.
Whether this predates what Pelosi was talking about or not doesn't matter. They have their boogyman and will use him as their patsy.
edit to add-
Pelosi accsusing the CIA of lying to Congress during a briefing is a big thing. Its even bigger when she doesn't provide proof of her claims.

Dude, seriously, stop reading World Nutjob Daily or watching Faux News. THE CIA CAME OUT AND SAID CHENEY DID THIS! Or is the CIA lying about that?
yet he himself leaked information to the press about CIA agent Plame, as dirty politics, exposing her spy activities, and grossly violating the law.
Cheney is a criminal, plain and simple.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage acknowledged Thursday that he was the source who first revealed the identity of CIA officer Valerie Plame to syndicated columnist Robert Novak back in 2003, touching off a federal investigation.
Armitage told the CBS Evening News that he did so inadvertently.
"I feel terrible," Armitage said. "Every day, I think, I let down the president. I let down the secretary of state. I let down my department, my family, and I also let down Mr. and Mrs. Wilson."
The Central Intelligence Agency asked The New York Times not to publish the name of Deuce Martinez, an interrogator who questioned Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and other high-level Al Qaeda prisoners, saying that to identify Mr. Martinez would invade his privacy and put him at risk of retaliation from terrorists or harassment from critics of the agency.
After discussion with agency officials and a lawyer for Mr. Martinez, the newspaper declined the request
Bush Has Widened Authority of C.I.A. to Kill Terrorists
Published: Sunday, December 15, 2002
WASHINGTON, Dec. 14 ? The Bush administration has prepared a list of terrorist leaders the Central Intelligence Agency is authorized to kill, if capture is impractical and civilian casualties can be minimized, senior military and intelligence officials said.
The previously undisclosed C.I.A. list includes key Qaeda leaders like Osama bin Laden and his chief deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, as well as other principal figures from Al Qaeda and affiliated terrorist groups, the officials said. The names of about two dozen terrorist leaders have recently been on the lethal-force list, officials said. "It's the worst of the worst," an official said.
