Brian Zick

Steve Benen at The Washington Monthly (guesting for Kevin) calls attention to the news that "Mr. Cheney did not necessarily agree with" the 4th Branch of Government claim he has been using all this time to avoid compliance with a variety of security and oversight responsibilities. Steve suggests that if the argument has genuinely fallen out of favor at the White House, maybe someone can tell the Justice Department? Gonzales & Co. have apparently been struggling with the question for several months. Maybe Cheney can give them a hand.
