Darth Ch*ney--the next generation
Cheney daughter leads cold war on mullahs
Sarah Baxter

THE war in Iraq is her fathers business but Elizabeth Cheney, the American vice-presidents daughter, has been given responsibility for bringing about a different type of regime change in Iran.
Cheney, a 39-year-old mother of four, is a senior official in the State Department, which has often been regarded as hostile territory by Dick Cheneys White House team. Nonetheless father and daughter agree it would be better for the mullahs regime to collapse from within than to be ousted by force.
The question is whether democratic reform can be achieved before Iran becomes a nuclear power. That is the younger Cheneys job. In the State Department she is referred to as the freedom agenda co-ordinator and the democracy czar for the broader Middle East. Shes fantastic and dynamic, said a colleague.

Her official title is deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs and she is in charge of spending the $85m (48m) up from $10m last year recently allocated to promote democracy in Iran. Much of it will be spent on broadcasting the views of exiles, dissidents and reformers inside Iran.

1. I thought the Cheneys believed in women staying at home.
Oh, not if more money can be directed into the Cheney Family Coffers while Dad is in Office. No nepotism involved here, I'm sure.

3. No the Ch*ney women
are carefully placed in policy-making jobs...except I haven't found what Mary Cheney is currently doing. She apparently lives with her partner in Portland, Or. Lynne has a post with the American Enterprise Institute and has been head of the NEA. Ann is the one in the article posted here. Like all neocons, I think that DeadEye believes he and his are truly the best and brightest and deserve to be in postions that will promote their agenda.

4. My, my (shakes head).
What I hate is no Cheney comes out and says, "Hey, when we talk about traditional values, we are full of crud. We really are after power, and, after that, we are after MORE POWER."

I guess that would be too honest.

Duplicitous jerks.

:puke: These guys just can't get enough of Orwell, can they?

Cheney is the king of nepotism.

These are some very sick and twisted people.
