Liz Cheney, Bill Kristol and a whiff of Joe McCarthy
While preparing a chapter for my next book, "Is This America?" (Cato Institute), on the effect of so many Americans in and out of school being unaware of their roots in the Constitution, I was startled by a replay of a March 2 video ad by Liz Cheney and Bill Kristol. In "Keep America...

Has Dick Cheney forgotten 9/11?
The one halfway-good memory from those awful days immediately following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks was the spirit of national unity it triggered. As I wrote at the time, nothing focuses the mind like the knowledge that there's somebody out to kill you simply for being American. "We...

Cheney opposes an inquiry into CIA torture
WASHINGTON -- It's no surprise that former Vice President Dick Cheney is opposed to the Justice Department's decision to investigate the torture of prisoners during the Bush-Cheney administration. After all, Cheney has acknowledged that he was "aware" of waterboarding (simulated...

Other views: Don't ignore Cheney
Former Vice President Dick Cheney might not be the warmest and fuzziest of personalities, but when it comes to national defense and U.S. intelligence capabilities, his candor is a wake-up call for the nation. In a broadcast interview, Cheney said the politicization of intelligence...

U.S. loses moral high ground with torture
WASHINGTON -- Secrecy is endemic in all governments. It goes with the turf, especially if their leaders hope to hide illegal or immoral behavior, such as torture of foreign prisoners. Many Americans heaved a sigh of relief this past January when President Barack Obama banned the...

Palin could be 2012 GOP nominee
It used to be easy to predict who the next Republican presidential nominee would be. It was decided by primogeniture: The next oldest guy in line got to be the king. It's not so easy looking to 2012, with former Vice President Dick Cheney out of the running and a woman, soon-to-be...

Cheney rages in retirement
WASHINGTON -- Former Vice President Dick Cheney is tossing verbal grenades at his successors. Maybe he just can't stand the loss of power. Pitiful. He is acting like a man who is one step ahead of the sheriff. Actually, that could be the case. The true story of Cheney's manipulations...

Obama, meet President Reagan
President Obama is strongly disinclined to support an independent investigation of possible criminal violations of U.S. laws and international treaties by the highest levels of the Bush-Cheney administration. He also has no personal interest in going after those Justice Department...

Obama vs. Cheney
Watching the dueling torture speeches by President Obama and former Vice President Dick Cheney (a rumble in the video jungle?), I was reminded of last year's campaign flap over the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. In each case, Obama was caught off guard by an eruption that provoked the politics...
