The new issue of American Conservative (3/27/06) contains my hit on Cheney’s latest lawlessness. Here is the first paragraph:
“The biggest surprise from the shooting of Harry Worthington was Dick Cheney’s announcement that he is entitled to declassify national security secrets. Such declassifications raise the question of whether the president and vice president possess unlimited discretion to manipulate the information Americans receive. And if Cheney does not actually possess the new prerogative he claims, he could risk impeachment if he invokes this power as a shield in the trial of his former chief of staff.”
That last sentence offers fresh proof of my incurable optimism.
The magazine will probably put the full piece online next week.
