    So the Cheney's are keeping the family enterprise going, huh? All this crap started in the sixties when Cheney and Rummy formed The Committee for the Present Danger claiming that the CIA was wrong and only they knew how truly dangerous the Soviet Union was, according to them, worse than anyone would tell you but them. Then there was Cheney's little story to the Saudi government about satellite photos showing "Iraqi troops massing on the Saudi border" in order to get Saudi backing for stationing U.S. troops there in preparation for Gulf War I. This guy has been in the fear-mongering business for four decades, and now his daughter is taking it over.

    •  The second CPD was begun in 1972 ... (0+ / 0-)

      ...and neither Cheney nor Rumsfeld were instrumental in setting up the organization, although Rumsfeld as Secretary of Defense was involved with the "Team B" assessment of the U.S. military and intelligence services vis-a-vis the Soviets. Team B included several outside "consultants" from CPD and one insider, Richard Pipes.
