OMG, is there any part of this government that Cheney isn't chief in charge of dismantling?

Cheney’s Son-In-Law Blamed for Delaying Investigations of Homeland Security Department
The Department of Homeland Security refuses to cooperate on oversight activities, according to testimony offered today by GAO Comptroller General David Walker and Homeland Security Inspector General Richard Skinner. The investigators highlighted the role of Philip Perry — Chief Counsel of the Department of Homeland Security and Vice President Cheney’s son-in-law — as the major stumbling block in their investigations.

Walker said the DHS strategy in dealing with investigations is to “delay, delay, delay.” CongressDaily reports:

“[Homeland Security] has been one of our persistent access challenges,” GAO Comptroller General David Walker told the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee. Walker said the problem is “systemic” and not the fault of any single individual. But he complained that GAO has had to go through the office of Chief Counsel Philip Perry. Perry is married to Elizabeth Cheney, a former State Department official who is one of the vice president’s two daughters. Walker said it is his understanding that Perry’s office has to review documents GAO seeks before they are released and that Perry selectively sits in on interviews with department employees.

Ed, it's actually a triumvirate that is the root cause of evil, Bush, Cheney, and Rice.
You might be missing a few rungs in your ladder yourself, not being aware of this.

LOL...thanks, I consider that post of his proof that he doesn't really read posts. I always include Cheney, Rice, and Rumsfeld in the axis of evil. Guess when your only goal is insulting fellow posters, you miss out. /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
