Dick Cheney: The Evil Genius in the Corner
"History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."--Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On this official holiday honoring the late advocate of "We the People" Martin Luther King I'd like to tickle your memory about Dick Cheney.

Dick Cheney voted against a resolution that advocated the freeing of Nelson Mandela and recognition of the African National Congress back in 1986 under President Reagan. He stated that it was "common knowledge" that the ANC was a "terrorist organization" while defending his vote on a network television show in 2000, although the vote was 245 to 177 in favor of the resolution, putting the lie to that Cheney statement. Although a majority of those voting were for the resolution it needed to be a two-thirds vote to overturn a veto imposed by then President Reagan.

Oddly enough as this well endnoted (linked) letter from Henry Waxman to Donald Rumsfeld dated April 30, 2003 shows the Halliburton Corporation under Mr Cheney's helm had no compunctions about doing business with terrorist nations.

I'll leave you with a current quote from Dick Cheney:
"Am I the evil genius in the corner that nobody ever sees come out of his hole?" he said. "It's a nice way to operate, actually."

Without attribution I would have guessed that to be a Karl Rove quotation. Go figure.

im-tv offers a good resource "Documenting the Halliburton / Cheney Crimes and Controversies" to learn more.
"How Dick Cheney and USA-Engage Subvert Democracy At Home And Abroad" gives the larger picture of Mr Cheney and his actions as Halliburton's CEO around the world

I'd like to introduce you to a perspective widening blog that is really well done; American Amnesia is worthy of note.
