    [link=http://www.freespeech.org/fsitv/fscm2/contentviewer.php?content_id=873]click here for an interesting (and comical) transcript[/link] from the 9/11 commission.

    This was my favourite part:

    Hamilton: That was a most intriguing reaction, Mr. Vice President. Nobody asked you about your actions or your motives. Commissioner Ben Veniste's question was directed at the President -- Mr. George W. Bush, the fellow sitting on your right. Are you suggesting to us that you are the architect of the Administration's policies with regard to pre-9/11 behavior?

    Cheney: It was a mere slip of the tongue, Mr. Vice Chairman, expressed in the heat of the moment. I serve to aid the President in his policy decisions. He was always in charge of Executive policy, and he is now.

    Bush: That's right. I am now. And was then. And always shall be. Just ask Dick.

    Cheney: That's right, Mr. President. You are the man who is in charge.

    I urge you to read it all, right to the end (that's the best/worst bit)

    *sigh* we're doomed.
