Cheney Mafia Finally Moving Into The Crosshairs

Perhaps the most dangerous people in the White House and the least visible.... by choice and by design. This is the little group of corporate cash vultures who are reaping the windfall of tax-dollars that the neocons have managed to jar loose from Congress with the hype about 9/11, Saddam Hussein etc. See what a tight little ship they have up there? Bush gets to rant and rave about good over evil, thereby pleasing the religious right. The wars that this battle entails is what the neocons need to further their goals as stated in the PNAC document. And Cheney, he gets to sit there and rake in the cash for his corporate friends back at Halliburton et al. Was there ever a more incestous love triangle in history? Certainly not in the political history of the United States. But there's no need for me to point out who's really getting screwed, is there?
