Cheney Defends NSA: 'We Need to Protect This Nation'

In an impassioned defense of the National Security Agency, former Vice President Dick Cheney said the spy agency has been pivotal in defending America against terrorists and should not be disbanded.

“The biggest threat facing us are terrorists armed with something more dangerous than plane tickets and box cutters,” Cheney told a sold-out crowd Friday at Steamboat Ski Area, Steamboat Today reported.

As George W. Bush’s second-in-command after the 9/11 attacks, Cheney helped design the NSA surveillance programs.

Cheney spoke alongside his daughter, Liz Cheney, who is running for the Senate in Wyoming.

He'll have a trial with due process for the charges of treason against the Constitution, that he'll have to face, right?

Just want to make sure it'll be done properly.

If so, 'works for me.

yea right dick....

say dick, how bout you go hunting and take your evil off-spring with you.

Let me fix that for him:

"We need to protect this nation government." (That's what he really means to say.)

Bump!

Dick Cheney needs to go back under his rock and stay there.

LOL! So says the fox of the henhouse....

What would the Founders do?

Cheney is right, but not how he means it.

"“The biggest threat facing us are terrorists armed with something more dangerous than plane tickets and box cutters,” Cheney told a sold-out crowd " That is right. The biggest threat are oath-breaking state goons armed with NSA super-computers and sophisticated intelligence gathering software.

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)

I can't decide if Cheney

reminds me more of Mr. Burns from the Simpson's

or the evil dried up Emperor dude from Star Wars.

Emperor from star wars

He is much to evil to be Mr. Burns.

Cheney Has His Own T.V. Show

'Duck Hunting With Dick'.
The first episode has to do with 'shotgun safety'.
He explains that the NSA and 'a shotgun' have a lot in common.
After he shoots his 'hunting partner' in the back (in the highlights), he is seen to laugh mischievously, explaining that, well, 'sometimes we make mistakes'.
He then goes on to rant about how he never SAID that 'actionable evidence' existed about Iraq's WMD's...
YUP.

Old Goat

Forget this Old Goat, it's his daughter who should not be elected to the Senate in Wyoming. She will likely use that as a stepping stone to more higher ambitions, like Michelle Bachman. All we need next is for MSM to push Liz as "in the top tier" like they did Bachmann.
In any elected office, she would likely serve as a puppet of good ol Haliburton and Co. who likely are financing her current campaign.
There is a reason she wants to be a Senator from Wyoming, and I hope the good people of Wyoming will wise up to her real motives.

They sing a song.

"I’d let Alexander cover my back anytime," Cheney said.

But would any sane person let Cheney cover their back?

The biggest threat facing America is leadership like Cheney's.

You are too gentle

Air drop him,stark naked, over what is left of Fallujah along with a case of rusty C Ration can openers. I am sure the Fallujah survivors would know what to do.

Cheney deserves the electric chair

...after being waterboarded by Bradley Manning for 2 weeks straight.

Better yet,

staked out over an ant hill!

NOSHEEPLE

Cheney is right!

"We have to protect this nation because The Carlyle Group and Halliburton haven't finished ripping the guts out of it yet. Once we have, well, we don't need to protect it anymore, because there will be nothing worth protecting."

Dog Eat Dog...

BP sues Halliburton over the Gulf Oil 'Spill' issue (USGov Mancondo 252 A,B,C 'leases', TransOcean, continued environmental disaster):

SAY: Doesn't the 'Carlyle Group' have a controlling interest in the company Snowden works (worked) for? Um, well...YES.

The RIGHT is now LEFT, and the LEFT is WRONG. I defy YEATS, who stated that 'the center does not hold'.
You have been given a choice. Fascism, or Communism. Romney, or Obama. AGW, or 'Climate Change'. FAUX, or CNN.
People are SO narrow-minded...
Your irony is duly noted, Jill.

Cheney is right

and thios confirms for me, NSA is now GSA Global.. remember when tech went global,, you would call AOL and talk to someone in India? That's what happened to NSA.. would have been great if NSA was of, by and for Americans.. we have foreign troops training with our troops, fireigners doing jury duty, driving with licenses.. taking jobs, getting super loans to open businesses..

Cheney is right.. too bad he's too late.

The UK has outsourced its

The UK has outsourced its internet censorship/monitoring to china, of course the global spy network is.... global... Microsoft/Google's #1 customers are governments.
