The CIA in the W administration wouldn't go after Cheney either for his crimes or for his role in exposing a covert spy's identity-which is a felony. Forgotten in this is that all of Plame's networks were compromised also. The CIA in the Obama administration, as with Obama, would rather look forward not backward, but current CIA Director Leon Panetta has said "I think he smells some blood in the water on the national-security issue," he told me. "It's almost, a little bit, gallows politics. When you read behind it, it's almost as if he's wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point. I think that's dangerous politics."


The Obama administration is gradually accumulating so much information against Cheney that the option of ignoring his crimes will inevitably change into prosecution of Cheney.


Sadly our national security is only just a political calculation for the GOP.


The House GOP passed a non-binding resolution expressing support for the pro-democracy demonstrators in Iran with the goals of vilifying President Obama while singing the praises of the one remaining Republican-- Ronald Reagan, who has any popularity in the US.


Eric Cantor: "America's moral responsibility to speak out on the protection of human rights wherever they are violated...I urge President Obama to follow the lead of this House."


Rep. Dana Rohrabacher: Silence would be a "betrayal of our fundamental principles" and a show of "weakness."


Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart: "The president of the United States has been silent and confused."

And Mike Pence's statement introducing the resolution far exceeded the rhetoric in the resolution itself:

"For days hundreds of thousands of dissidents have taken to the streets of Iran in support of freedom and democracy. The American cause is freedom and in that cause the American people will not be silent."
