Spier: Bush-Cheney preposterous posturing to fear

By Bill Spier, right

Last night on the Jim Lehrer News Hour, V.P. Cheney claimed that Americans would have been killed if the administration had not eavesdropped on terrorist conversations.

Remarkably, he spent nearly a half an hour tossing bull on the failure of Iraq reconstruction, gurgling about his statement eight months ago that the insurgency was in its “last throes”, and positing non-existant Presidential perogatives, etc. Looking down, he kept saying we have a plan. The bull was so incredible that the White House sent Bush out today to give an example a lifesaving intelligence success. Here it is:

The president said that a 2002 plot to hijack a plane and fly it into a Los Angeles skyscraper was uncovered and scuttled.
Bush said the hijacker planned to blow up the cockpit door with a shoe bomb.

I could not make this kind of stuff up even if I tried.
