Well just cry me a river, won't you Dick?
Dick Cheney says he's offended that the media actually has, imagine this, the ordacity to report on the inner workings of our government.
He's referring to a report disclosed in news organizations this week, that our government has been examining the banking records of Americans and other citizens in a huge international database.
The secretive financial tracking program was reported on by the New York Times and other news outlets.
In response, Dick Cheney said "What I find most disturbing about these stories is the fact that some of the news media take it upon themselves to disclose vital national security programs, thereby making it more difficult for us to prevent future attacks against the American people. That offends me."
Of course it offends you, Dick. After all, it's not like the American people have the right to know how their government works! Imagine that!
And excuse me Dick. Wasn't it just this week that your boss was lecturing the international community on "non-transparent regimes." Your boss said "It should make people nervous when non-transparent regimes who have announced they have nuclear warheads, fire missiles. This is not the way you conduct business in the world."
With all the super-secretive data-mining that's been going on under BushCo., it's apparent that the United States is fast becoming one of those "non-transparent regimes" that Bushie has been lecturing about.
