    BREAKING: NYT reports Cheney told CIA to hide info from Congress

    From MSNBC:

    "The Central Intelligence Agency withheld information about a secret counterterrorism program from Congress for eight years on direct orders from former Vice President Dick Cheney, the agency’s director, Leon E. Panetta, has told the Senate and House intelligence committees, two people with direct knowledge of the matter said Saturday.

    The report that Mr. Cheney was behind the decision to conceal the still-unidentified program from Congress deepened the mystery surrounding it, suggesting that the Bush administration had put a high priority on the program and its secrecy.

    Mr. Panetta, who ended the program when he first learned of its existence from subordinates on June 23, briefed the two intelligence committees about it in separate closed sessions the next day."

    Obama's approval numbers have been taking a nose dive lately, and they want to pass cap and trade and health care so they need a BIG, BIG distraction. This will be like all the rest. When it finally comes out it will be nothing.

    So...What I'm hearing is this plan was never implemented. It was only a "plan" And there is an attempt to make a stink over it? Of course it can serve the valuable function as an attention-decoy as mentioned above as well as twisted vindication of Pelosi's comments. All you'd need to make it work in both cases is a media who'll accept it as such. And, they damn sure have that.

    When did the VP obtain the power to tell the CIA to do anything?
