Cheney Says He May Be a Witness in Libby Trial

VP Dick Cheney told CNN he may be a witness at the Scooter Libby trial.

Libby is "one of the finest men I've ever known," Cheney said, then declined further comment. "I may be called as a witness."

There's a lot of discussion about Cheney in this May 5 Libby hearing transcript.

    cheney is unbelievable... watching pbs' "the dark side" made my blood run cold...
    "What the Democrats are suggesting basically you can call it withdrawal, you can call it redeployment, whatever you want to call it, basically it's -- in effect, validates the terrorist strategy," Cheney said.
    it ain't even ABOUT terrorists, dead-eye, you lying sack... it's about sectarian violence, the hobgoblins of shia-sunni animosity held in check for years by saddam's rigid authoritarian rule and now set loose by a horribly ill-conceived, unbelievably poorly executed war, undertaken by the united states on the basis of lies to secure a global monopoly on energy resources... if there was such a thing as instant karma, uncle d, you would have been struck dead by lightning long ago... And, yes, I DO take it personally

    What's he going to testify to: that HE really had all the power and Libby was just carrying out orders, and his conscience just can deal with it anymore?

    Cheney as a character wqitness? "They'll throw away the key!" Harcourt Fenton Mudd

    Good point Che...Scooter probably saw that as more of a threat than a compliment. I doubt Dick could get through the session without using the F word a few times. Nope, I'd much rather have Rumsfeld testify on my behalf. At least no one would be able to decipher what the hell he was testifying to.
