Cheney's Lawless Assistant

New York Times columnist Bob Herbert's column today is a must read. It details how an aid to Vice President Dick Cheney, a man named Addington, has been the force behind the gutting of the U.S. Constitution under Bush/Cheney:

In the view of Mr. Addington and his acolytes, anything and everything
that the president authorized in the fight against terror — regardless of what
the Constitution or Congress or the Geneva Conventions might say — was all
right. That included torture, rendition, warrantless wiretapping, the suspension of habeas corpus, you name

Note: the American people did not elect this Addington character - he is a political appointee.
