While the world is totally consumes with Assange's arrest over dubious charges of having sex without a condom/ rape/ err... depends on who one talks
to or what you read...and its implications-- no bail being granted, will the rest of the Wikileaks be released...
Over here in this
corner, we have Mr. Former Vice-President himself.
Mr. Dick Cheney, who today was formally indicted by Nigeria's anti-corruption agency for bribery.
charge. No "dubious" nature to this
He and Halliburton allegedly
paid over $180 million in bribes to get liquified natural gas plants
built in Nigeria.
Each charge in the 16 count indictment carries a minimum
years in Nigerian prison.
Femi Babafemi, a spokesman for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, declined to comment when asked how likely it was that Cheney
would be extradited to Nigeria over the charges.
"We are following the laws of the land. We want to follow the laws and see where it will go," the spokesman said. "We're very convinced by the time
the trial commences, we'd make application for appropriate court orders to be issued."
Well, shouldn't he also be the target of an international manhunt then?
Shouldn't Mr. Cheney be extradicted, forthwith, and charged as he stands?
These are extremely serious charges, with no "dubious" quality to their implication.
Are we, as America, to show the world that our citizens, especially those who help former public office, are "above the law", even when charged as
this in such a public arena?
As Assange was arrested for his "crimes", it is only fair Cheney be arrested immediately for his, if American government truly wants the world to
believe the dog and pony show propoganda they spew, as well as the farce of the "Freedom Press Information" gala junket that they had the gall, today
of all days, to announce the US is going to hold in May.
Oh yes, this on top of the DHS messages that will be playing in WalMarts countrywide...
Does this mean if I see Dick Cheney in a WalMart and report it, he will be arrested?
I have had my inner peace disturbed more this past week than in a very long time with the asinine antics going on of late in the world...the duplicity
is deep and patently obvious.
