    Cheney held 433,000 stock options for the duration of the Iraq war and personally steered lucrative no bid contracts to the firm. He made a fortune, several million dollars from the sale which he donated to charity. But, he still took the tax deduction, which was sizable. Why wasn't he made to divest himself of those shares to begin with?

    While we yawn over these facts, to those we subdued and conquered, the impression is much coarser and likely to come back and bite us at a later time.

    Cheney should be in jail where he could run his fat mouth to other prisoners.
