3. Of course, Cheney considers himself to the be finest VP the nation
ever had, so I wouldn't put much stock in his ability to assess quality.

14. Two War Criminals praising another War Criminal.
Rumsfeld Shouldn't be Fired, He Should be Indicted
by Matthew Rothschild

“Secretary Rumsfeld has publicly admitted that . . . he ordered an Iraqi national held in Camp Cropper, a high security detention center in Iraq, to be kept off the prison’s rolls and not presented to the International Committee of the Red Cross,” the report noted. The Geneva Conventions require countries to grant the Red Cross access to all detainees. “

19. Well, there you go, another thing this administration is so wrong on. The
more you screw up in this administration, the bigger award and send-off you get.

The honors and awards this administration give have become nothing more than a joke.
