Do not pass go and go straight to jail?

Leon Panetta, the Director of the CIA, revealed to members of the House and Senate that former Vice President Cheney ordered the CIA to withhold information about a secret counter-terrorism program from Congress for 8 years.

 

According to the law the President (Bush) was supposed assure that intelligence committees “are kept fully and currently informed of the intelligence activities of the United States, including any significant anticipated intelligence activity”. But the language of the law leaves some flexibility for interpretation. The law also states that for covert programs briefings can be limited to the Republican and Democratic leaders of the House and Senate and their intelligence committees.

 

Cheney should have disclosed the program to the leaders and their committees.

 

I think a complete review of Cheney’s (and possibly Bush’s) actions are required to determine once and for all if crimes were committed.

 

If there were crimes committed they should be brought up on charges as would any other American citizen.

    As a citizen of this country, I am attuned to this country’s current and historic leadership’s role in dubious behaviors against its citizenry. I am not surprised. However, I can’t seem to get my head around how the perpetrators always seem to say it was the right thing to do and how many times they get away with it. Maybe, just maybe the citizenry will see justice prevail in the end.
