This is Vile: Cheney's office "Not Part of the Executive Branch"

This is vile.

According to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, "Vice President Cheney exempted his office from the presidential order that establishes government-wide procedures for safeguarding classified national security information. The Vice President asserts that his office is not an “entity within the executive branch.”

After further back and forth, "The Vice President's staff responded by seeking to abolish the agency within the Archives that is responsible for implementing the President's executive order. "

This is bloody amazing and amazingly arrogant! Mr. Cheney seems to think the rules don't apply to him, that he can keep all the secrets he wants and circumvent, avoid or cancel his legal responsibilities.

There is no place hot enough in Hell to accommodate this man's soul.
