New information leaked on Dick Cheney’s International Assassination Squad

12Jul09

Dick_Cheney_HaririMore secrets emerged today about the Bush administration. Former Vice President Dick Cheney ordered the concealment of a secret CIA counterterrororism program for eight years, the New York Times reported, though the scope of the program is unknown. CIA Director Leon Panetta told the Senate and House intelligence committees that he ended the program when he first learned about it from subordinates on June 23. Officials say the program did not involve the much-criticized CIA interrogation program or domestic intelligence gathering. “They have said the program was started by the counterterrorism center at the C.I.A. shortly after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, but never became fully operational, involving planning and some training that took place off and on from 2001 until this year,” The Times reports. Congressional officials differ on the program’s significance. The news comes on the heels of an inspectors general report that said only three lawyers in the Department of Justice knew of President Bush’s secret domestic wiretapping program.

Dick Cheney is also suspected in ordering his death squad on the killing of Elie Hobeika and Rafik el Hariri in 2004 and 2005.

    “Dick Cheney is also suspected in ordering his death squad on the killing of Elie Hobeika and Rafik el Hariri in 2004 and 2005.” WOW!!! REALLY???
    Explain why you feel the need to propogate what can only be described as an arabist asshat conspiracy theory? You think that using the caveat that these accusations are “unconfrimed” will cover for the absolute stupidity of the statement?…by the way exactly WHEN do you expect the accusations to be “confirmed”? during your lifetime maybe, or maybe when the brotherly (or is it sisterly this week) syria becomes a free country?

  2. yup, 2002.
    The article seems a bit conspirationalist. don’t u think?

    I’m on my phone now, so I cant be bothered to Google the exact date, but Hobeika died when we were in college… I’m thinking 2001-2002, no?
