the vice president of the united states -- in an official white house press release -- supports convicted perjurer and obstructor of justice!




[click, above -- or read, below. . .]

even if i tried, i could
not make this stuff up -- it
just writes itself! -- the vice
president of the united states,
one mister richard b. cheney, on
the white house .gov web site
(and thus funded by us, as taxpayers!),
no less, has offered his support for
the convicted perjurer and justice-
obstructor, lewis libby. did i miss
something? didn't mr. cheney swear to
uphold the law
when he took the oath
of office in jan. 2001, and jan. 2005?

this is pernicious.

the emphasis below is mine:

Vice President’s Statement on Libby Sentencing

Scooter has dedicated much of his life to public service at the State Department, the Department of Defense and the White House. In each of these assignments he has served the nation tirelessly and with great distinction. I relied on him heavily in my capacity as Secretary of Defense and as Vice President. I have always considered him to be a man of the highest intellect, judgment and personal integrity -- a man fully committed to protecting the vital security interests of the United States and its citizens. Scooter is also a friend, and on a personal level Lynne and I remain deeply saddened by this tragedy and its effect on his wife, Harriet, and their young children. The defense has indicated it plans to appeal the conviction in the case. Speaking as friends, we hope that our system will return a final result consistent with what we know of this fine man. . .


it seems i was wrong about the
sort of letter our vice president
would write -- dead. wrong. [click

here is the background. . .]

and that, my fellow americans, is
a real tragedy for our republic.



UPDATED:

06.07.07 4 p.m.:

rep conyers, and rep. nadler,
have called upon the vice
president to stop undermining
the rule of law:
. . .The Executive Branch must speak through one voice on matters of criminal prosecution. We would hope a sitting Vice President would not suggest that the Government seeks any result other than that sought by the prosecutors representing the Department of Justice, or imply that the decisions of the trial court — both as to the validity of the verdict or the proper sentence — should be undone. . .

I always heard something from my neighbor that he sometimes goes to the internet bar to play the game which will use him some habbo credits,he usually can win a lot of habbo gold,then he let his friends all have some habbo coins,his friends thank him very much for introducing them the cheap habbo credits,they usually buy habbo gold together.
I am so happy to get some hero gold and the hero online gold is given by my close friend who tells me that the hero online money is the basis to enter into the game. Therefore, I should buy hero gold with the spare money and I gain some hero money from other players.
