Another year, another war criminal book-touring at the Miller Center at the University of Virginia.
This time, at 11 a.m. on November 16th, it’ll be Dick Cheney.
The Miller Center is not allowing members of the public to attend on a first-come basis, as is the standard practice. Instead, it is asking people to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and then wait for approval to attend.
Whether any or some or all people not known by the Miller Center to be welcoming of war criminals are being screened out we do not yet know.
Reasons some might ask Cheney uncomfortable questions during his Q&A include:
–Cheney lied to and defrauded the public and the Congress to launch a war on Iraq.
–Cheney pressured the CIA to assist in that fraud.
–Cheney threatened and worked to promote war on Iran.
–Cheney lied to the public and Congress in an effort to launch a war on Iran.
–Cheney led a campaign of retribution against whistleblower Joseph Wilson, including the outing of a covert CIA operative.
–Cheney refused to comply with Congressional subpoenas and obstructed Department of Justice investigations.
–Cheney profited financially from his war-making through compensation from Halliburton.
–Cheney led efforts to create programs of warrantless spying, lawless imprisonment, and torture.
–Cheney created the secret Energy Task Force which operated in defiance of open-government laws.
–Cheney violated laws on the handling of classified information and destroyed official visitors logs.
—Cheney Suppressed Evidence in the California Energy Crisis.
—Cheney continues to make false claims as well as to openly brag about many of these offenses.
