Strange coincidence behind Cheney's destruction of records
Advertisements [?]
I don't think this is possible but I read this and would like it debunked because it makes too much sense.

Vice President Dick Cheney asked the Secret Service last September to delete the records of which political figures visited his residence. Cheney's lawyers cited the Presidential Records Act of 1978 as an excuse.

This is all part of a court battle involving an advocacy group that says Cheney must turn over his logs because they are subject to the Freedom of Information Act:

The Justice Department filed the letter Friday in a lawsuit by a private group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, seeking the identities of conservative religious leaders who visited Cheney at his official residence.

The ironic part about all this is the fact that an unidentified member of the Senate has placed a secret hold on a bipartisan bill specifically designed to strengthen the Freedom of Information Act. Since Dick Cheney is the president of the Senate in addition to being Vice President, is it possible that he is the one secretly placing the hold on the bill?
