Obama Names Eric Holder Attorney General-- Dick Cheney Indicted

>

Cheney is still at large-- armed and extremely dangerous

The two things, alas, are not connected. Cheney and Alberto Gonzales were indicted by a Willacy, Texas grand jury on 7 state charges stemming from prisoner abuse. But this isn't any of the Geneva Convention stuff Mr. Holder would be getting ready to look into if this was really a nation of laws. The Texas grand jury indicted them on charges involving local prisons. It looks like a crazy case by a crazy district attorney and it looks like it won't even rise to the level of nuisance suit-- although I'm sure Cheney and Gonzales are guilty of whatever and more. Doesn't this sound just like him?
Cheney is charged with engaging in an organized criminal activity related to the vice president's investment in the Vanguard Group, which holds financial interests in the private prison companies running the federal detention centers. It accuses Cheney of a conflict of interest and "at least misdemeanor assaults" on detainees because of his link to the prison companies.

...The indictment accuses Gonzales of using his position while in office to stop an investigation in 2006 into abuses at one of the privately-run prisons.

As for Holder, let's wait and see. I don't know a lot about him other than that he was a Deputy Attorney General under Clinton and an Acting Attorney General when Bush took over and before the Senate choked back the vomit in its mouth and endorsed Ashcroft, but I do know that he'll be the nation's first African-American Attorney General, something I'm sure will agitate the dominant KKK wing of the Republican Party. Today's Time has a good speech he gave a few days ago to the American Constitution Society about the need to reverse "the disastrous course" set by the Bush Torture Regime.
“Our needlessly abusive and unlawful practices in the ‘War on Terror' have diminished our standing in the world community and made us less, rather than more, safe. For the sake of our safety and security, and because it is the right thing to do, the next president must move immediately to reclaim America's standing in the world as a nation that cherishes and protects individual freedom and basic human rights.”

Expect to hear the wingnuts howling that he had something to do with Clinton's pardon of wingnut substitute bete noir Marc Rich.

Through buying rappelz rupees, I find fun in it. I am so glad that I can earn a lot of rappelz gold. Rappelz cater to the taste of young people. With cheap rappelz rupees, you can get everything you want in this game. So I like to buy rupees. For me rappelz money is not just a simple thing.
