Cheney's Trip To West Point

Dick Cheney didn't get too political with his speech at the commencement at West Point today, but he did bring up the truth that the "terrorists" massed in Iraq, making it the central front in the "war on terrorism."

Of course he left out the fact they weren't there before we invaded.

Protestors weren't allowed on campus grounds, federal judges barred them from protesting. Personally, I tend to agree. I'm all for protesting, but not at someone's graduation. Instead, they gathered in a nearby village where they staged their anti-war protest.

A counterprotest was also present, with one pro-war demostrating saying this;

“People should support the troops and they’re going to support the enemy with their protest,” said Jim Dwyer, who was standing with a group called a “Gathering of Eagles” that had hoisted a large American flag on a crane.

Fascism is alive and well in America.
